Plastics are vital to our economy as they are used in a number of different products across the country. Businesses specializing in plastic production look to our region to expand as our employees are already knowledgeable in this area and offer innovative solutions for plastic production.

Molding the Future of Plastics

As plastics become more sophisticated and the number of applications increases, plastics companies must continually innovate and maximize productivity. Few places are as ready to facilitate those activities as our region. That’s why plastics manufacturers such as Pactiv Corporation and Zeus Industrial Products are proud to call our area home.

With a strong plastics industry presence, our area offers workers with the high-tech skills plastics companies need for extruding, molding, or advanced design work, and our K-12 and higher education resources keep those skills sharp with training focused specifically to the industry. Plastics companies can tap into the expertise of Aiken Technical College, Piedmont Technical College, and the University of South Carolina at Aiken to mold the workforce they need.

Our region also offers abundant and affordable utility capacity, solid infrastructure, and easy transportation access for incoming shipments of pellets and chemicals and outgoing shipments, especially to automakers, and the world beyond. And, as a right-to-work state, plastics companies are assured of finding people whose focus is on earning a paycheck through hard work and a focus on quality and productivity.
