A building on Greeleyville Highway that has sat empty for years will soon have a new occupant, one that will bring jobs and money to Manning and the surrounding areas.
Kent International Inc., a global supplier of bicycles and accessories for major retailers, announced last week its intention to build its new manufacturing facility in Clarendon County. The company will use the plant to supply Walmart with its first American-made bicycles.
“Of course, we are very excited,” said Clarendon County Council Chairman Dwight Stewart. “We’re especially excited that a building that hasn’t been used in quite some time is a part of this deal.”
