North Carolina Tops South Carolina, Lands Sawmill Facility


Marshville-based Edwards Wood Products recently announced that it has selected Scotland County, North Carolina as the location for a new sawmill facility.  Initially, Edwards Wood Products will be investing 30 million dollars over 3 years to open the facility, creating 46 new jobs along with it.  Phase 2 contemplates an additional 20-million-dollar investment, along with an additional 45 new jobs.  North Carolina’s stiffest competition for the plant’s location is said to have been Manning, South Carolina.  However, concerted efforts by multiple agencies and officials were sufficient to keep the plant at home in North Carolina.
