Loctek, a manufacturer of ergonomic solution productions, is investing $5 million to establish operations in Clarendon County. The new facility is expected to create 10 jobs.
Founded in 1999, Loctek designs and manufactures height-adjustable desks and other products for office environments.
“Loctek is excited to be a part of the diverse business network rapidly growing within South Carolina,” Loctek CEO Lane Shaw said in a news release. “With the help of Clarendon County, the state and a highly skilled local workforce, we believe that this will be a formula for success both for Loctek and the Clarendon County community.”
The facility, located at 1979 Joe Rogers Jr. Blvd. in Manning, is expected to be completed by March 2021. It will serve as a warehousing, shipping and receiving location.

“We welcome our newest industry with open arms to our diverse manufacturing base,” Clarendon County Council Chairman Dwight Stewart said. “Our strategic location with supplier access to the Port of Charleston proves once again to be the driving factor behind a company like Loctek in deciding to locate in Clarendon County.”p
