BARNWELL COUNTY, S.C. -- News 12 has learned NK Newlook, a store fixtures and retail interior manufacturer, will open a new distribution center in Barnwell County.
The $5 million investment is expected to bring more than 200 jobs to the area.
"We are excited to locate our new facility in Barnwell County," said NK Newlook President Bob Nottin. "South Carolina offered us an excellent business climate and a talented and available workforce. We look forward to establishing our new operations and appreciate all the support we've received from state and local officials."
The company's new facility will be located in the building previously occupied by Allied Air in Blackville.
