Mumford Industries Inc., a post-industrial plastics recycling company and producer of Retrieve sustainable film products, will invest $2 million in a Greenwood area facility expansion and create 33 jobs.
“Our expansion is thrilling because we know it will allow us to not only have an even greater impact on the environment, but also the sustainability goals of the companies that call South Carolina home,” Mumford Industries President George Mumford said in a news release. “We appreciate all the support we have received from Greenwood County to make this happen.”
Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Greenwood County, Mumford Industries serves a variety of sectors including the automotive, plastics manufacturers, food packaging and distribution markets.
Located at 4730 Ninety-Six Highway in Ninety Six, Mumford Industries’ expansion will allow the company to accommodate additional capacity to meet growing demand for recycled materials and environment-conscious products.
“This expansion is great news for Ninety Six and Greenwood County,” Greenwood County Councilman Dayne Pruitt said in the release. “Not only is this the most jobs that have been created in Ninety Six in recent history, but Mumford Industries is also a company that is leading the way for a brighter tomorrow for us all. I am grateful for Mumford Industries’ decision to expand operations and their belief in our town and county.”
Mumford Industries’ newest venture is the production of Retrieve, a brand of sustainable film packaging products including bags, pouches and divider/slip sheets made from reclaimed, recycled, unused and scrap plastic film that can be used by manufacturers to offset greenhouse gas emissions and support carbon footprint reduction, according to the release.
“With more businesses prioritizing corporate sustainability, we are excited to have companies like Mumford Industries on our state’s roster of recycling firms,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in the release. “Along with creating opportunities for South Carolinians in the Greenwood County community, Mumford Industries is also helping create a more sustainable future for all.”
The expansion is expected to be complete in May 2025.
