Encore Container, a manufacturer and re-conditioner of industrial containers, announced that Wednesday that it will locate its new corporate headquarters, manufacturing and recycling facility in Greenville County. The $3.9 million investment is expected to create some 89 jobs within the next three years.
“Encore Container is focused on providing our industrial customer base with quality plastic drums and intermediate bulk container (IBC) totes, along with the most dependable service in the industry,” said CEO Chad Odom. “We pride ourselves on providing the fastest service in the industry, reducing our customers’ environmental liability and inventories while improving their cash flows. We are pleased to locate our corporate headquarters, manufacturing and reconditioning operations here in Greenville County.”
The company has already established operations in an 80,000-square-foot facility at 7021 Augusta Road, and has already begun hiring. Encore Container’s services include national trip leasing, pick-up service for plastic drums and IBC totes (including 55 gallon drums and 275 gallon totes) and tote cleaning, reconditioning and recycling.
“Seeing a new company choose South Carolina as the place to start its operations is always exciting. We celebrate the decision by Encore Container to locate its initial operations in Greenville with a $3.9 million investment and the creation of 89 new jobs,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
Encore recycles plastic fallout from its reconditioning process to make new drums, and recycles steel fallout through arrangements with steel recycling companies, and the company also conserves water through the design of its wash process that minimizes use through reverse plumbing, solids removal and filtration, and water reuse. The result is a zero discharge of wastewater.
“Encore Container is a fine example of an entrepreneurial company that is using advanced technology, performance-based processes and local talent to grow and succeed here in the Upstate,” said Chris Riley, chairman of the Greenville Area Development Corporation. “The company is a great reflection of the opportunities to be found here in Greenville County.”
Jobs being added include: equipment operators, skilled maintenance positions, customer support and unskilled labor positions, along with sales, accounting and administrative positions. Those interested in an employment there can contact the company at HR@EncoreContainer.com.
