Healthcare US Co., Ltd., a venture of China-based Healthcare Co., Ltd., announced plans to establish new operations in Fairfield County. The company’s $45 million investment is projected to create 250 new jobs.
Founded in Jiangsu, China in 2003, Healthcare Co., Ltd. is the first publicly-traded, memory-foam mattress manufacturer in China and is now the largest such manufacturer in that country. Becoming a global industry leader, the company has established production operations in both Serbia and Spain, with approximately 3,600 workers worldwide.
Healthcare US Co., Ltd. is expected to launch its new 650,000-square-foot Fairfield County facility in the first quarter of 2019. Located at 1 Guardian Way in Winnsboro, S.C., the operation will specialize in the production of memory-foam mattresses for a variety of customers.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $300,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Fairfield County to assist with the costs of building renovations.
“We’re happy to be establishing this new facility in Fairfield County, and we are very appreciative of the ongoing support from both the local and state governments,” said James Ni, Healthcare Co., Ltd. president. “This is a milestone for our company, and we are excited to support the community we will soon be calling home.”
