Tin Thanh Group Americas, a tire manufacturer, announced plans to establish its first United States operations which will be in Allendale County. The company’s $68 million investment will create 1,031 jobs, according to the South Carolina Department of Commerce.

“Tin Thanh Group Americas is excited to make South Carolina home for its first location outside Vietnam and is proud to be South Carolina’s first Vietnamese company,” said Tin Thanh Group Americas Chief Executive Officer Tran Dinh Quyen.  “With the assistance of the Department of Commerce, the SouthernCarolina Alliance and the officials at Allendale County, and the assistance of readySC, the decision was clear compared with the other locations that sought our project in the Southeast. Tin Thanh Group Americas looks forward to a long-lasting, fruitful and cooperative relationship with all of South Carolina.”

“This announcement once again shows the world has taken notice of the many benefits of doing business in South Carolina,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “This major $68 million investment and 1,031 new jobs will be transformative for Allendale. We proudly welcome our first Vietnamese company, Tin Thanh Group Americas, to the state and look forward to creating a long-standing partnership.”

Located at Walker Road in Fairfax, Tin Thanh Group Americas will build a new facility in Allendale County. Tin Thanh Group Americas’ South Carolina location will allow the company to manufacture and retread large commercial vehicle tires, as well as operate its commercial tire leasing program, Commerce officials said.

Supplying energy from reusable sources, Tin Thanh Group Americas will provide operations in recycled energy, closed industry-agriculture, recycled waste and tire leasing while serving the environment, energy, high-tech agriculture and technology markets, the officials said. 

They said that with a focus on sustainability, the company is committed to implementing sustainable practices to lower the carbon-emission level and provide a cleaner environment.

Operations are expected to be online by September 2024. Those interested in joining Tin Thanh Group Americas should email resumes to the company.

The state’s Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to the project. 

The council also awarded a $1 million Rural Infrastructure Fund (RIF) grant to Allendale County to assist with the costs of site preparation and infrastructure improvements.
