Gov. Haley to mark PermaShrink groundbreaking in Clover

Gov. Nikki Haley is scheduled to help PermaShrink break ground Monday, Aug. 29, for its new manufacturing plant at the Westgate Industrial Park in Clover.

The groundbreaking is set at the Larne Building, 103 North Main St., at the intersection of U.S. 321 and S.C. 55.

PermaShrink announced in December it will invest $3.3 million to equip a plant in Clover. When operating, the plant will employ about 16 people in manufacturing and office positions.

The company will lease its building from the York County Natural Gas Authority, the industrial park’s owner.

The plant will make SanforSet rubber belts used in compressive shrinking machines, the final step in the textile process. Most of the belts will be shipped to overseas markets, particularly to companies in the Far East.
