Bridgestone Americas will build a 1.5 million-square-foot plant in Aiken County to make off-road tires and will expand its current plant for a combined $1.2 billion investment, the company announced Wednesday.
The investment should bring more than 850 full-time and contractor jobs to South Carolina, the company said.
“Today’s announcement represents the largest initial capital investment by a company in our state’s history, and we celebrate the more than 850 new jobs. This is a continuation of the good work we are doing to partner with companies. South Carolina has a great reason to smile today,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
