Industrial product manufacturer Crane Co. will consolidate its North American vending operations into its Dixie-Narco facility in Barnwell County, which has the potential to increase employment by 1,000 over the next five years.

Crane Co. will invest about $20 million in the Williston, S.C., facility to increase operations.

The vending machine production facility already employs 500 people. Hiring should begin within the next 14 months, according to the company.

“In today’s highly competitive global economy, our state’s ability to attract jobs of this magnitude and grow our existing businesses is critical,” said South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.
