Florida-based Southern Milling & Lumber will build a $1.2 million manufacturing facility in Calhoun County, S.C., according to the Calhoun Times Democrat newspaper.
The facility will produce lumber, wood pallets and specialty packaging. Construction on the new facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2007.
The manufacturing plant is expected to employ about 50 people in the area, which has recently been investing in economic development.
