A local manufacturer is seeking incentives as part of a plan to expand and add 76 jobs.

The company’s identity has not been publicly disclosed, but “Project Aries” is looking to invest $19.5 million to build a distribution center that would serve its existing plant, according to Charleston County’s economic development office.

Charleston County Council is expected to take up the request for incentives for the first time at its meeting tonight in North Charleston.

The manufacturer is asking to pay a set fee of $4.8 million over 20 years instead of property taxes. Also, it is seeking for a tax credit to offset the cost of roadwork or other infrastructure.

See Wednesday’s editions of The Post and Courier for more details.
