The $13 million investment to open a containerboard manufacturing plant will create 60 new jobs in Lexington County, SC.

Interstate Container announces that it will establish a new manufacturing plant in Lexington County, South Carolina, with the facility expected online in September. The corrugated plant will produce eco-friendly wax-alternative corrugated boxes, which are 100% recyclable, repulpable, and compostable and which are used to ship fresh and frozen food products, such as poultry and seafood.

Interstate Container is renovating a facility previously owned by Smurfit Stone to meet its manufacturing needs. This location, with its local and state support, provides necessary market access for the corrugated packaging manufacturer to expand its customer base and market reach. 

Interstate Container is a division of Interstate Resources, a national group of kraft linerboard, recycled medium, and corrugated manufacturers based in the U.S.
