A construction project that will bring a 100,000-square-foot flexible packaging facility to Orangeburg is underway, led by Frampton Construction Co. LLC. Brookwood Capital Partners is developer for the Indevco Plastics industrial project.
Construction on the design-build project began in February and is currently in the sitework phase, according to a news release. The pre-engineered metal building will house manufacturing, storage, office and lab space for the flexible packaging company.
“We’re looking forward to establishing a presence in the Southeast, and Frampton Construction has been a reliable partner in that venture,” Robert Laird, president of Indevco, said in the news release. “We’re set for an on-time opening and excited to make our entry into Orangeburg and the larger S.C. community.”
Construction is expected to conclude this fall.
The facility includes a 20,000-square-foot penthouse area with 63-foot-high ceilings designed to accommodate large manufacturing machinery. The remaining 80,000-square-foot area has a 30-foot clear height, the release said. Rail access enables efficient transport of plastic resin to the facility, which is then manufactured into flexible packaging and distributed throughout North America for a range of industries.
“This project is off to a great start with an impressive team, and we’re confident this will be a swift and successful endeavor we’ll all be proud to witness,” Lindsay Sewell, principal at Brookwood Capital Partners, said in the release.
Keaton Green, vice president of Frampton Construction, said his company is proud to be part of project that offers solutions to some common challenges.
“To have the chance to build a new facility for a multi-national company like Indevco, known not just for plastics, but for recyclable materials that make for a more sustainable world, is an honor for all of us at Frampton Construction,” Green said in the release. Frampton Construction is a full-service construction firm that provides planning and design support, preconstruction and construction services.
Indevco Plastics produces a range of recyclable plastic film and bags for manufacturers and converters, including form-fill-seal film, centerfold sheeting, heavy-duty open mouth bags, stretch hood film, shrink bundling film, and sealant film, according to the release. The company serves the beverage, building material, chemical and petrochemical, industrial salt, mineral, lawn and garden, material handling, and packaging converting markets.
