The Jones-Hamilton Company, an Ohio-based specialty chemical manufacturer, broke ground today for a sodium bisulfate production facility that will create 20 full-time jobs in Richburg, SC.
The approximately $40 million facility will include a reactor, 115-foot spray/congealing tower and 139-foot bucket elevator. The planned building is a 43,000 square foot Varco-Pruden pre-engineered metal warehouse with a 4,000 square foot office. The project will include a rail connection. Rudolph/Libbe Companies, based in Walbridge, Ohio, is the design/build contractor for the project, which is scheduled for completion in April 2015.
