According to a county official who wishes to stay unnamed, JUUL has approached Lexington County, South Carolina to propose establishing a new production facility in the state’s midlands area.
According to South Carolina Senator Katrina Shealy (R-Lexington), the possibility of a JUUL manufacturing facility in the state is, “still up in the air and negotiations are ongoing. They are seeking at areas and one particular of them is in my district,”
A JUUL spokesperson had previously stated that the enterprise had no official plans to announce as of that time. Nonetheless, on the net job postings have emerged for two positions in Columbia, South Carolina.
Initially is a Web site Manufacturing engineer position. The second, which at this time remains unfilled, is a Senior Supplier Excellent Engineer. That listing reads, in component:
“The Senior Supplier Excellent Engineer develops, establishes and maintains high-quality engineering methodologies, systems, and practices which meet FDA, client, and regulatory needs. Serves as a Excellent representative at our Columbia web page to enhance awareness, visibility, communication on high-quality initiatives to assistance departmental, functional, web page, divisional and corporate high-quality objectives and priorities.”
According to Shealy and an spokesperson for the Richland-Lexington Airport District Enterprise Park, the negotiations so far have centered on a park inside that web page. The home is no longer owned by the Columbia Metropolitan airport but is positioned inside the Enterprise Park.
