Orangeburg, South Carolina Facility Will Provide An Opportunity For Zeus To Build-Out Its Corporate Campus
Orangeburg, S.C. – (July 17, 2019) – Zeus Industrial Products, Inc. (Zeus), a leading polymer extrusion manufacturer and material science innovator, has entered into a contract to purchase the building currently housing Mayer Industries Inc. (Mayer). The deal will close by the end of this year when Mayer concludes operations and exits its facilities. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Located at 3777 Industrial Boulevard in Orangeburg, South Carolina, the Mayer property is near two existing Zeus facilities: the Zeus Sales and Marketing building and the Frank P. Tourville, Jr. Engineering Center of Excellence. Although exact plans for the site are undetermined, its proximity to other Zeus facilities creates the opportunity to design a corporate campus. In addition, this strategic location would offer Zeus increased visibility from Interstate 26 should future development plans for the site unfold.
To begin the handover process, Zeus has filed a Voluntary Cleanup Contract (the Contract) with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The company has also hired Charleston-based S&ME to conduct the environmental studies requested by DHEC. Zeus and S&ME will work together to ensure compliance with the Contract and satisfactory completion of all voluntary cleanup activities.
Zeus is currently assisting Mayer employees by providing job opportunities to those affected by the plant closure.
Purchasing the Mayer building is part of Zeus’ ongoing expansion project in the region. The company recently purchased a facility in St. Matthews, South Carolina and is building a new plant near Columbia, South Carolina.
“Since opening our doors in 1966, Zeus has always invested in growing its business. We have steadily grown our company to become a leading polymer solutions provider with over 1,700 employees. Purchasing the Mayer property in Orangeburg represents one possible next phase in our company’s ongoing expansion program. Orangeburg has been our company headquarters location for almost thirty years and with three additional facilities in the county, Zeus’ Orangeburg presence is significant. We are excited to continue investing in the future of Zeus and hope that our activities in the Orangeburg community will continue to grow.” – Steve Peterson, President, Zeus Industrial Products, Inc.
