BID Group announced plans to expand operations in Dorchester County. The company, in the wood processing business, will invest $10.6 million and create 25 new jobs, according to the S.C. Commerce Department.

BID Group has locations throughout the United States and Canada, delivering a range of equipment, services and installations for the industry, according to a news release. The company deals in sawmill equipment automation, manufacturing, installation and life cycle service.

The capital investment is aimed at increasing capacity through productivity gains and facility expansion, according to the company.

Located at 176 Academy Road in St. George since 2013, the company is acquiring a new computerized numerical control horizontal milling machine and increasing the size of its current warehouse, the release said. The new CNC machine will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity.

“We would like to thank Dorchester County and the S.C. Department of Commerce for their contributions to and support of these investments,” BID Group Chief Financial Officer Adam Infanti said in the release. “We are humbled and honored by their continued trust in BID. We are excited to be increasing our presence in South Carolina to support the growing needs of our highly valued customers. The multiple projects within this investment will allow the company to increase capacity, advance efficiency and improve lead time.” 

The expansion is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2023.

“Dorchester County congratulates BID Group on their expansion and thanks them for their ongoing confidence and investment in Dorchester County,” Dorchester County Council Chairman Bill Hearn said in the release. “BID Group has been a great ally to both the county and the town of St. George since they arrived in 2013, and we wish them continued success for the future.”
