Columbia, S.C.— Economic development professionals and attorneys with Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP and Parker Poe Consulting are helping Titan Stainless establish a new manufacturing facility in Pageland, S.C.
Titan Stainless plans to create 50 new jobs over the next five years and invest approximately $2.6 million to operate a new 50,000-square-foot facility. Parker Poe helped the company negotiate state and local incentives and successfully navigate other corporate location issues as it settled on the site in the Lynches River Industrial Park.
The company was formed in 2013 in Waxhaw, N.C., to manufacture and install stainless steel cabinets, dish and work tables, floor trough, sinks and other equipment for the healthcare and food service industries. Hiring for the new facility is expected to begin in December.
“We’re excited to be moving to Pageland and Chesterfield County. State and local leaders and the professionals at Parker Poe have made our move into this business-friendly atmosphere feel both welcoming and economically sensible. It works for all of us,” said Dillon Melton, President of Titan Stainless.
“We enjoyed helping Dillon and the Titan Stainless team evaluate sites, determine what kind of facility and infrastructure they would need to get off to a great start, and ensure that people would be there to keep this dynamic young company on the move,” said Mark Simmons, a Principal with Parker Poe Consulting, a wholly owned subsidiary of Parker Poe that provides diverse economic development services to clients across the U.S. and in Mexico.
“Titan is an innovative, growing, start-up success and this decision to locate in Chesterfield County and South Carolina is reflective of the company’s strategic plan to increase production capacity to serve existing and future clients. We were thankful that Titan chose Parker Poe’s team to support this major initiative for the company and look forward to watching them continue to grow and prosper in the future,” said Sam Moses, Partner in the Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein office in Columbia, S.C., and co-chair of the firm’s Business Incentives & Investment Group.
