NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A company that creates and installs specialty props for amusement parks, museums, and other venues has announced plans to relocate from Denver, Colorado to North Myrtle Beach.

Little Spider Creations will create 35 jobs in the area over a five-year period, paying an average of $20 per hour, along with an investment of $2.65 million in the area, according to a news release from the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation.

Little Spider Creations will set up shop in an existing 24,000 square-foot facility in North Myrtle Beach, and is hiring painters, designers, muralists and sculptors. Creators can submit a resume and photos of their work to littlespiderinc@aol.com.

“We decided to relocate Little Spider Creations to the Myrtle Beach area because the location offers us easy access to current and potential new customers, as well as the ability to tap into new creative talent,” said Marc Brawner, President & CEO of Little Spider Creations. “We are excited about this opportunity and the strategic growth that it will provide for our company.”

The company has created props for national clients including Six Flags Entertainment Corp, Carowinds, and the Dollywood Theme Park, according to the news release.

The company is estimated to generate a $6 million economic impact for Horry County. The North myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce has committed $25,000 to Little Spider Creations from its Job Creation Fund Grant, the release states.

“This is a great example of how by collaborating with our local partners, like the North Myrtle Beach Chamber, we are able to be competitive and win good projects like this one,” said Jim Moore, President & CEO of the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation. “People visit Horry County and they see how we work together to pool our resources, which will help their businesses grow and be successful.
