Samsung says it will invest $380 million to build a new advanced manufacturing plant in South Carolina that will employ more than 950 people.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced the deal on Wednesday.
“Samsung’s investment is great news for South Carolina and the United States, and it is a direct reflection of the fact that America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow,” Ross said in a statement. “I congratulate Samsung on its expansion in the United States and wish the company success as it starts up its new facility in South Carolina.
The plant, which will produce premium home appliances, will be built in Newberry County. The county seat is the town of Newberry.
“When fully operational, the plant will employ workers across a broad range of advanced manufacturing roles, including craftsmen, operators, engineers and other both technical and non-technical positions,” the Commerce Department noted.
