Synergy Steel announced Tuesday it plans to open a 32,000-square-foot facility in Lancaster. The company is investing $2.8 million into the project, according to a statement from McMaster.
“The 139 new jobs that Synergy Steel is bringing to Lancaster County will change the lives of South Carolinians, and for that, we couldn’t be more grateful,” McMaster said. “We wish Synergy Steel all the best on their new endeavors, and I look forward to watching them succeed for years to come.”
The company manufactures steel studs, engineered floor and roof trusses, and wall panels for the construction industry, according to the statement.
