COLUMBIA, S.C. — May 4, 2022 — Mumford Industries Inc., a post-industrial plastics recycling company and producer of Retrieve® sustainable film products, today announced plans to expand operations in Greenwood County. The company is investing $2 million and creating 33 new jobs.
Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Greenwood County, Mumford Industries is one of the leading industrial plastics recycling companies in the Southeast — providing clients with professional and reliable services that give them the ability to be environmentally responsible, profitable and competitive in their business practices. The company serves a variety of industries including automotive, plastics manufacturers, food packaging, distribution and more.
Located at 4730 Ninety Six Highway in Ninety Six, Mumford Industries’ expansion will allow the company to accommodate additional capacity to meet growing demand for recycled materials and environmentally responsible products. Post-industrial plastics recycling and management is complex and ever-changing, and Mumford Industries supplies companies with recycling programs and services that create a positive impact on corporate sustainability goals, budgets and reputations.
Mumford Industries’ newest venture is producing sustainable packaging. Retrieve sustainable film products include bags, pouches and divider/slip sheets made from reclaimed, recycled, unused, scrap plastic film that can be used commercially to offset greenhouse gas emissions and support carbon footprint reduction.
The expansion is expected to be complete in May 2025. Individuals interested in joining the Mumford Industries team should visit the company’s contact page.
“Our expansion is thrilling because we know it will allow us to not only have an even greater impact on the environment, but also the sustainability goals of the companies that call South Carolina home,” said Mumford Industries President George Mumford. “We appreciate all the support we have received from Greenwood County to make this happen.”
“With more businesses prioritizing corporate sustainability, we are excited to have companies like Mumford Industries on our state’s roster of recycling firms,” said Governor Henry McMaster. “Along with creating opportunities for South Carolinians in the Greenwood County community, Mumford Industries is also helping create a more sustainable future for all.”
“Mumford Industries’ latest expansion in Greenwood County further proves that South Carolina is a state that focuses on sustainability,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III. “We congratulate Mumford Industries on this $2 million investment and the 33 new jobs they are creating, and we value our strong business relationship.”
“This expansion is great news for Ninety Six and Greenwood County,” said Greenwood County Councilman Dayne Pruitt. “Not only is this the most jobs that have been created in Ninety Six in recent history, but Mumford Industries is also a company that is leading the way for a brighter tomorrow for us all. I am grateful for Mumford Industries’ decision to expand operations and their belief in our town and county.”
