GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – MPW Industrial Services is bringing a new industrial water regeneration plant and at least 32 new jobs to Andrews, SC.

“We are delighted that MPW Industrial Services has chosen to locate in Georgetown County and make an investment of this size here,” said Georgetown County Council Chairman Johnny Morant.

The $10 million project, that will be located in the Georgetown County Business Center, is projected to begin operations next summer, according to a news release from Georgetown County.

“The jobs the company will bring will have a lasting impact and greatly benefit our community and the Andrews area in particular. We are committed to working with and attracting businesses that provide more opportunities for Georgetown County residents, and we consider MPW’s decision a great success,” Chairman Morant said.

State and local officials are allocating $225,000 in incentives for the project. Construction is anticipated to start in the fall and temporary construction jobs will be created as a result, the release stated.

“Today’s announcement isn’t just important because of the number of jobs or the level of investment that a great company such as MPW Industrial Services is making in our region,” said Yancey McGill, chairman of North Eastern Strategic Alliance’s executive committee. “It’s important because they, as a company, know they can be successful in our region. They know that our workforce, infrastructure and overall business environment provide them with everything they need to be successful.”

MPW’s regeneration facilities restore exhausted resin from the company’s mobile deionization systems back to an ionic form capable of purifying more water and provide pure water to industrial customers within a 500-mile radius.

“In addition to being business friendly, Georgetown County is a great location because we can easily reach clients from Florida to Alabama, all of whom depend on us for prompt and timely service, said Jared Black, general manager for MPW’s Industrial Water division.

For almost a year, Brian Tucker, director of the Georgetown County Economic Development Department, has been working on getting MPW to the county.

“Our entire team has worked hard for months to get to this point,” Tucker expressed. “I’m excited about this new plant and I’m even more excited about the jobs coming to Georgetown County and Andrews. This is a great win for the county and the broader community.”

Georgetown County Economic Development, Georgetown County Council, the SC Department of Commerce, NESA, Georgetown County Water and Sewer District, Santee Electric and the Georgetown County Alliance for Economic Development all played a role in bringing MPW to the area.

The company will refurbish an existing building it purchased from Georgetown County for its facility; the site is located at 373 Technology Drive and will be MPW’s fifth regeneration plant in the country.
