Longleaf Packaging has broken ground on its first cement packaging and distribution facility at Orangeburg, South Carolina, USA. The company is investing around US$6m and is projected to create 28 new jobs at the 28-acre site over the next five years.

The plant will package and distribute bagged, pre-blended and dry-mix products, with production expected to commence in the 4Q18. Alongside Portland cement, the product line will include mortar mix, concrete mix and sand mix.

"We feel very at home here. We are confident we made the right decision to locate here," said Ray Love, president of Longleaf Packaging. "The proximity of resources and ease of logistics of [Interstate highway] I-95 and I-26 as well as being near some of the fastest-growing markets in the nation all make Orangeburg the perfect place for our company," he added.
