An elevator guide rails producer will expand its operations in Orangeburg County, investing $2.1 million and creating 10 new jobs over the next two years.

Monteferro USA will add 32,000 square feet of production and storage space and several new pieces of production equipment. The expansion is expected to be completed in 2014. This expansion will take the facility to more than 72,000 square feet in the Orangeburg County/City Industrial Park located at Exit 154 on Interstate 26.

“It has been Monteferro’s long-term plan to increase our production capacity in Orangeburg, and we feel now is the appropriate time to do so. We see an upturn in the construction industry and we expect it to continue,” said Bill Lewis, president of Monteferro America.
