COLUMBIA, S.C. – Swift Group of Industries, a maker of replacement refrigerator filters, will establish a new filter manufacturing facility in Clarendon County. With an initial $3.5 million investment, and further investment planned later, the company expects to generate 60 new jobs.
“We looked at a number of different states for our U.S. location and found that South Carolina offered the best choice. The entire South Carolina economic development team was well-prepared to show us the path to our company goals. We would like to thank John Truluck at Clarendon County, Andre Leblanc and the Commerce staff and especially the Clarendon County Council for working through the Christmas holiday to make this project a reality,” said Ramesh Suri, managing director of Swift Group of Industries.
