"I’m hoping and anticipating 1,000 to 1,500 jobs and as the company grows and time passes, that there are more than that," says Johnny Ravenell, Orangeburg County Councilman for District 2. "We’re really looking for a promising future for people who will hold these jobs."

The first phase of the site is expected to be completed in spring of 2020.
