Xerxes, a subsidiary of Shawcor Ltd., today announced plans to establish its first South Carolina operations in Richland County. The company will create about 80 new jobs.

Shawcor Ltd., the parent company of Xerxes, will expand its composite systems segment production capabilities in the United States, with an additional production facility for its Xerxes business. Xerxes manufactures market-leading, fiberglass-reinforced plastic underground storage tanks, primarily used within the retail fuel, stormwater and wastewater markets.

Shawcor Ltd. is a growth-oriented, global material sciences company serving the infrastructure, energy and transportation markets. The company operates through a network of fixed and mobile manufacturing and service facilities. Its three business segments – composite systems, automotive and industrial, and pipeline and pipe services – enable responsible renewal and enhancement of critical infrastructure while lowering risk and environmental impact.

Located at 141 Hobart Road in Blythewood, Xerxes plans to lease a new production facility that will expand the company’s capability to deliver market-leading underground fuel and water storage tanks.

The facility will be populated in phases. It is expected to be operational by the end of 2024 and to approach normalized levels of production in 2026. People interested in joining the Xerxes team should visit the company’s contact page.

“Our new Xerxes facility will bring 80 jobs to Blythewood while positioning us closer to our U.S. customer base and expanding our ability to serve the Eastern U.S. market with underground storage tanks,” said Shawcor Ltd. Composite Systems segment President Martin Perez.
