A new manufacturing facility is in the works for Orangeburg County, South Carolina.
South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster’s office announced that Pratrivero USA, a division of Pratrivero Nonwovens, plans to set up operations in Orangeburg at 3777 Industrial Blvd.
McMaster said: “Pratrivero USA’s new operation in Orangeburg County is another testament to South Carolina’s pro-business environment and workforce.
“We are excited to have Pratrivero USA join our roster of global companies that operate within our state.”
Operations are due to start in September.
Pratrivero Nonwovens is headquartered in Italy and has been family-owned and operated for 14 generations.
It manufactures fabrics that are used in a variety of applications, including furniture, advertising banners, footwear, packaging, and the automotive industry.
Stitchbond, a nonwoven fabric produced by mechanical bonding of fiber layers with continuous filaments, will be manufactured at the Pratrivero facility in Orangeburg.
Pratrivero USA President Paolo Barberis Canonico said “Pratrivero USA is looking forward to being part of the Orangeburg County industrial family. We are very excited about this new investment and feel by choosing such a great location and working with the wonderful people in this community, we will succeed.”
“The approach that Orangeburg County has taken to include a training program with Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College to help us find and train people specifically for our industry is a wonderful benefit for Pratrivero USA and the people we will be hiring.”
