Sigmatex Carbon Textile Solutions is expanding its location in Cameron, South Carolina. In order to cover the costs, they are investing $4.5 million toward the project. This will go toward adding onto to their facility, as well as adding new machinery and materials. The project should be complete by mid-2021 and create 50 new jobs then. So this will provide many economic opportunities for Orangeburg County.
