Firm Invests $12.5M to Open New Concrete Dry Mix Plant

Concrete masonry technology and design firm Adams Products plans to invest $12.5 million to add a new dry mix and bagging plant to its 42-acre site in Cowpens, SC, the South Carolina Department of Commerce announced in a release Tuesday.

Manufacturing equipment, including an 11-silo batch system for specialty aggregates and two new dry mix bagging lines, will be installed in the facility. The company, a subsidiary of Oldcastle APG, said the expansion will help them to increase production of Sakrete bagged concrete and Amerimix mortars. 

“We look forward to expanding manufacturing capabilities at our Cowpens facility to better serve our customers and meet their needs,” the firm’s president, Colin Clampett, said in a statement. “The addition of cutting-edge equipment will provide a first-class working environment for employees and significantly increase availability of our high-quality dry mix products to our customers in the Carolinas.”

Work on the addition is expected to be completed later this year. To support the project, the South Carolina Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits for the project. Cherokee County will receive $200,000 from the Rural Infrastructure Fund to cover some costs linked to the expansion.
