JUUL Labs, Inc. Investing More Than $125 Million In Lexington County Operations

May 13, 2019 10:21AM

JUUL Labs, Inc. announced plans to invest more than $125 million in a new assembly facility in Lexington County. This investment is expected to help create more than 500 new jobs to support the assembly operations.

JUUL Labs was established to help adult smokers switch from combustible cigarettes. Since launching in 2015, the company has maintained a commitment to keeping all tobacco products, including JUUL products, out of the hands of youth. The company stopped the sale of non-tobacco and non-menthol based flavored JUULpods to all of its traditional retail store partners in 2018.

The Lexington County operations will assemble and package JUUL products using advanced production techniques. Operations are expected to come online this summer, and those interested in job opportunities should contact Randstad or Aerotek.

"We are excited to work with community leaders to support the creation of high-quality American jobs for a diverse and inclusive workforce drawn from across the Midlands as we continue to invest in helping adult smokers switch from combustible cigarettes and combating youth usage,” said Kevin Burns, JUUL Labs CEO.
