The facility will help MycoWorks meet demand for its patented Reishi™ biobased, leather-like material that is used by luxury brands, among other companies.

“I was proud to join with MycoWorks to cele-brate the grand opening of their new Union facility,”said Governor Henry McMaster.“It’s great to add a biomaterials manufacturer to South Carolina’s expanding range of products and services, and we look forward to the opportunities this investment will bring to students and technicians across the state.”
