The new $5.4 million Effingham Pellets facility will produce wood pellets for the European energy market.

Wood pellet products firm Effingham Pellets LLC, a subsidiary of Charles Ingram Lumber Company, is planning to invest $5.4 million to open a new facility in Florence, SC, a release issued by the South Carolina Department of Commerce said this week.

“We are excited to begin operations in Florence County, where we will be able to produce power solutions that promote sustainability on an international scale. Effingham Pellets, LLC looks forward to being an important partner to Charles Ingram Lumber Company and the community as a whole,” a company statement said.  

Pellets manufactured at the Florence site by the recently formed company will be exported to Europe for use in power plants.

10 new jobs are expected to be created as a result of the project. Effingham Pellets’ new plant is slated to become operational by June 2021.
