Engineered Foam Packaging (EFP), a subsidiary of J.B. Poindexter & Co., Inc., announced plans to establish operations in Lee County. The company’s $15 million investment will create 53 new jobs.

Established in 1954, EFP is a leader in the design and manufacturing of custom protective packaging and cold chain solutions.

“We continue to invest in our business with a focus on applying unique capabilities to unlock the value of breakthrough packaging needs. This new manufacturing center in South Carolina augments our geographic reach allowing us to more effectively serve our diverse customer base in the Southeast, while opening a whole new geography for growth and expansion with prospective new customers. We are thrilled to partner with the state of South Carolina, Lee County and TheLINK Alliance as we establish our first South Carolina-based operation. The South Carolina and TheLINK project teams have been extremely helpful through our site selection journey, and we look forward to a long and successful future in Lee County.” said Engineered Foam Packaging President John Hoeper.

Located at 227 Browntown Road in Bishopville, EFP’s new operations will be the company’s first South Carolina location. The new facility will include the custom upfit of a 117,000-square-foot industrial building which will house the manufacturing and distribution operations. The company anticipates an expansion to the facility of an additional 50,000 to 100,000 square feet in two to three years.

“South Carolina continues to diversify its manufacturing industry by adding innovative companies such as Engineered Foam Packaging. Investing in rural areas within the state is a winning strategy for businesses and the community.” states Gov. Henry McMaster.
