COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Dillon County is scheduled to get an additional 107 jobs over the next two years.

South Carolina officials said Thursday that Dillon Furniture Manufacturing Co. plans to spend nearly $3 million to expand its Dillon County plant.

General Manager Howard Carr says the company has continued to experience growth, prompting the decision to expand the operation. The expansion will increase production of hospitality furniture at the plant.

The project is expected to be finished by the end of 2013.

The state is providing training funds and job development credits if the company meets hiring targets. Dillon County also is providing tax incentives for the expansion.

The company expects to begin hiring next month.
