Bondex Inc. is expanding in Edgefield County, spending more than $6 million in an effort that should add 13 jobs.
Bondex is adding a new product line at its plant in Trenton, which will allow it to make industrial laminates and composites for the electrical and electronic markets.
The company will add 33,000 square feet to the facility, doubling the plant’s size.
The expansion is expected to be completed at the end of the fourth quarter with production starting in January.
“Over the past few years Edgefield County Council has been working on strategic areas that would make the county competitive in the world marketplace ,” said Edgefield County Council Chairman Dean Campbell. “Existing industries was one of those initiatives, and we appreciate Bondex, one of our existing industries, continuing to grow and provide employment opportunities in Edgefield County.”
