Integra Invests $2 Million In Expansion Effort

Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based Integra International Inc. recently invested $2 million to expand its
headquarters to the Loris Commerce Center in nearby Loris, S.C. Integra –  a hospitality
textile converting company specializing in the heat-transfer of printed fabrics for use in such
applications as bedding, drapery and upholstery – plans to employ 40 people.

“When existing industries expand their operations in the area, it exemplifies the fact that
Horry County has the business environment necessary for companies to flourish,” said Joe Woodle,
president and CEO of Conway, S.C.-based PARTNERS Economic Development Corp., which assisted Integra
with the expansion. “This is an excellent example of the state, county and city all working
together to bring a project to fruition.
