Recycling biz plans 75 jobs in Charleston County

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A company that recovers and sells component materials is planning to create 75 new jobs in Charleston County.

The South Carolina Department of Commerce announced on Wednesday that PyroTec Inc. is planning to spend $10 million to set up its domestic and global corporate headquarters.

PyroTec extracts materials from scrap tires and plastics and sells them on the commodities market. The company says it plans to begin hiring for the new positions in July.

Officials say PyroTec works closely with two other South Carolina companies. Greenville-based TRC is the company’s global environmental engineering consultant. And Johnson Development, located in Spartanburg, consults with PyroTec on business construction and land management.
