According to reports, one of the top economic development investments in Berkeley County is inching closer to fully operating its $300 million expansion initiative it first announced in 2018.

By spring 2020, JW Aluminum is anticipated to have its two newest buildings—a total of 220,000 square feet of additional space within the Mt. Holly Commerce Park—fully operational, according to company officials, who last month updated the county’s business community about the large-scale project.

The expansion is expected to add 50 new jobs to the 388-member workface currently employed at the local plant—its largest U.S.-based plant. As a whole, JW Aluminum boasts at least 800 employees across sites in four states.
