GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An Andrews-based company that manufactures industrial safety products is investing $20 million to expand operations and bring an expected 100 new jobs to Georgetown County, according to a news release from the Governor’s Office.

Established in 2003, SafeRack, LLC is a leader in truck, railcar, and industrial safety, and will be building a 100,000 square-foot addition to its existing facility in Andrews, the release states. The new space is anticipated to be operational in 2017, and will be used for manufacturing, warehousing, and sales.

“We are committed to having both our customer service and manufacturing facilities based in Andrews and surrounding areas,” said SafeRack/SixAxis Chief Executive Officer Rob Honeycutt. “We believe being based in South Carolina contributes to our success and this success is directly tied to our need for expanded facilities and staff.  This partnership will benefit everyone involved.”

Hiring for new jobs is expected to begin in 2016. Those interested in working at SafeRack can visit www.saferack.com/careers for more information.

“SafeRack is a great example of how South Carolina companies can grow and thrive in our state,” Gov. Nikki Haley said. “This $20 million investment, creating 100 new jobs, is a huge step for this remarkable company and proves that the Team South Carolina approach to investing in workforce training, education and economic development continues to pay off.”

A $200,000 grant from the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has been approved for Georgetown County to assist with the cost of property improvements and job development credits related to the project.
