Juul Labs plans to invest more than $125 million in its new assembly facility in Lexington, South Carolina. The factory is expected to create more than 500 new jobs to support assembly operations, according to a release from the South Carolina Department of Congress.
“We are excited to work with community leaders to support the creation of high-quality American jobs for a diverse and inclusive workforce drawn from across the Midlands as we continue to invest in helping adult smokers switch from combustible cigarettes and combating youth usage,” said Juul Labs CEO Kevin Burns.
The Lexington County operations will assemble and package Juul products using advanced production techniques. Operations are expected to come online this summer, the release states.
“Today, we celebrate Juul Labs’ investment in Lexington County … South Carolina’s pro-business environment continues to attract companies to our borders, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for this innovative company,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
