GREENVILLE, S.C. - Jan. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Moss & Associates of Greenville has been selected as the design-builder of Keer Group’s new textile manufacturing facility in northern Lancaster County. This construction project is the second of two Chinese-owned manufacturing facilities for Moss’s Carolinas Division in the past year.

The 230,000-square-foot plant, in Indian Land, S.C., just south of Charlotte, will manufacture industrial cotton yarn and create more than 500 jobs, according to state estimates. Keer Group's investment is likely to exceed $200 million, with official ground breaking to occur in February 2014.

“Speed-to-market is critical to the Keer Group, and our team of design-build professionals will work to deliver their project on schedule and under budget,” said Don Warren, executive vice president for Moss & Associates’ Carolinas Division. “An important focus for our Division is to continue to develop our expertise in serving Chinese manufacturing companies that are coming to the Carolinas.”

In choosing the location, Zhu Shanqing, Keer Group’s chairman, cited the state’s workforce, proximity to cotton producers and access to the Port of Charleston.

“South Carolina quickly rose to the top of our list," Mr. Zhu said in a press release published by the South Carolina Department of Commerce. "We look forward to a successful partnership with the state and the local community as we get this facility up and running during the next year."

The Keer Group of Hangzhou, China, founded in 1995, manufactures cotton yarn in a large facility in China with more than 2,000 employees. Its Charlotte-based Keer America subsidiary was founded in February 2013.
