An international decor printing company is investing $21 million to expand its Lexington County operations in a move expected to create 23 jobs during the next five years.
Schattdecor, a family-owned company headquartered in Germany and founded in 1985, produces printed, impregnated and finished surfaces used for flooring, furniture, countertops, doors and interior design. Schattdecor’s state-of-the-art production facilities create minimal environmental emissions while optimizing energy use.
The expansion will include the addition of a new production line and mixing plant at the facility, located at 138 Zenker Road in Lexington.
“Schattdecor is proud to announce the expansion at our Lexington facility as we grow to meet global demand,” Flavio Nunes, company president, said in a news release from Central SC Alliance. “The positive manufacturing environment in South Carolina motivated Schattdecor to focus our development efforts in North America toward Lexington. We are excited to be part of this community and look forward to a long future of further investment and cooperation.”
“This internationally known company is recognized for creating high-quality products and providing reliable service to its customers, and we are excited to see that continue as they expand their operations in Lexington County,” Lexington County Council Chair Scott Whetstone said. “The growth of Schattdecor adds to our list of the many successful manufacturing industries which are creating more jobs for our residents and helping Lexington County see continued prosperity in the future.”
