Last week, Builders FirstSource, a supplier of structural building products, announced plans to establish operations in Jasper County, S.C. The $16 million investment will create 126 new jobs over the next five years.

“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our footprint in South Carolina. Builders FirstSource is invested in building communities, and our growth in South Carolina not only benefits the people of Jasper County, but our business as well. We look forward to a continued successful partnership with Jasper County,” said Steve Herron, Builders FirstSource division president.

Established in 1988, Builders FirstSource specializes in value-added components and services to the professional market for new residential construction, repair and remodeling.

“Manufacturing continues to be a catalyst for investment and jobs across all areas of South Carolina. Builders FirstSource’s new operations in Jasper County are a testament to the business-friendly environment Team S.C. continues to cultivate,” said South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

Located in Point South Park in Yemassee, the new Builders FirstSource location will allow the company to expand its offerings and production capacity. Additionally, this site will complement its 23 current locations throughout South Carolina, including its Cherry Point Yard in Ridgeland.

“Builders FirstSource’s decision to locate in Jasper County is yet another win for one of our state’s rural communities. This $16 million investment and 126 new jobs will make a significant impact across the Jasper community. We applaud Builders FirstSource for their commitment to doing business in South Carolina and are excited to see the great things they’ll continue to do here,” added Gov. Henry McMaster.

Operations are expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2022. Individuals interested in joining the Builders FirstSource team should visit the company’s careers page.
