US (SC): Groundbreaking held for hydroponics farm in Pee Dee

On Thursday morning, Dillon County held a groundbreaking ceremony for East Nile Farms’ new facility along Heritage Road in Lake View.

The company invested $15.5 million and will create 200 new jobs in Dillon County.

“We’re definitely excited. It’s been a long time coming for Lake View and Dillon County,” said Tonny McNeil, director of economic development for Dillon County. “This is a tremendous opportunity for us, but ultimately our goal is for every single person that wants a job to have one in Dillon County.”

The company plans to produce 622,000 plants per month at the new facility. East Nile chose Dillon County for its geographic location and its people.
