Bosses of boat makers Sportsman Boats have confirmed they intend to expand their operations at a facility in Dorchester County.
The project is likely to create 75 new jobs and the company has created fishing boats since it was founded in 2012.
The $8 million investment will expand the facility to a 75,000-square-foot climate-controlled building, a new parking lot for employees and additional parking for the boat transportation fleet.
The venture is projected to be completed in the third quarter of next year.
Sportsman is a company that produces pleasure fishing outboard boats. The company’s main manufacturing facility is located in Dorchester County, South Carolina.
