Liberty manufacturer to add jobs in South Carolina



LIBERTY, S.C. -- A window maker plans to add 4,000 square feet and 150 new jobs in an expansion at its plant here, said Dean Thomas, secretary of the Greater Liberty Chamber of Commerce.

Southern Vinyl Window Manufacturing already employs about 150 and owners Bill and Maria Gillespie expect that number to double in the expansion.

The company makes vinyl windows for homes and expects several elected officials to attend its open house Monday for the official expansion dedication.
