“IKO is very pleased to be opening its first wholly-owned glass and glass mat facilities in South Carolina. This is just the latest of many significant investments IKO has made to support a growing U.S. market presence. We are tremendously gratified by the warm welcome we have received from the state and local governments, and as a family run business, we look forward to joining the Chester County business community family for many years to come.” […]
“Congratulations to IKO on establishing its first South Carolina operations in Chester County. South Carolina continues to be the state that provides businesses with the resources and support to establish and excel. We look forward to a strong partnership with IKO for years to come.” […]
“We are thrilled to welcome IKO to the I-77 region! IKO is a leader in advanced materials, which is a great fit for the existing sectors in Chester County. One of the advantages is the strategic location along the I-77 corridor that allows companies to tap into both the Charlotte and Columbia metros, providing a labor shed of more than 1.3 million people.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
