Ridgeland Pellet Company plans to launch new manufacturing operations in Ridgeland, South Carolina. The company’s $8.1 million investment is projected to create 27 new jobs over the next five years in Jasper County.

A manufacturer of wood pellets used in home heating fuel, alternative industrial energy and equine bedding, Ridgeland Pellet Company will purchase an existing manufacturing facility located at 579 Nimmer Turf Road in Ridgeland.

The company will be making improvements to existing buildings and expanding its capabilities with additional structures, machinery and equipment. Ridgeland Pellet Company’s new operations are expected to come online later this quarter.

“Ridgeland Pellet Company, LLC will manufacture biomass fuel pellets in the Ridgeland community for export to European markets pursuant to a long-term contract. We are excited about the opportunity to help grow existing industry in Jasper County, as well as the nearby port infrastructure and the proximity of this project to a number of sawmills that will provide the necessary wood chips and other raw materials for our company,” said Ridgeland Pellet Company CEO Charles W. Knight.

“We are proud to celebrate Ridgeland Pellet Company’s investment in South Carolina and our people. Anytime a company is able to set up shop here, it proves what we already know, that we have one of the most competitive business environments in the world and a workforce that can get the job done,” Governor Henry McMaster said.
