Kinro Inc. to Open New Window/Door Plant
A window and door manufacturer is opening up shop in South Carolina with a nearly $1 million investment that is expected to create 125 new jobs, according to WMBF-TV, Myrtle Beach.
Kinro Inc., a subsidiary of White Plains, N.Y.-based Drew Industries Inc., announced Wednesday (April 7) it would locate its new $978,300 manufacturing plant in the former Philips Products plant in Chester. The plant will manufacture entry doors and windows for manufactured homes and RVs.
“Our market share has increased, and this new plant will help us meet growing demand from our customers,” Kinro President/CEO Jason Lippert said. “Chester County has provided us with an excellent pre-existing facility, and the positive business environment and available labor force make the area a great fit for us.”
The company expects to begin hiring for the positions now and continue hiring over the next 12 months.
