NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — A manufacturer now located in the Northeast will announce within a month that it is locating its operation and corporate headquarters to Horry County, Brad Lofton, CEO of the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corp., said at a meeting Wednesday morning.
Lofton told the EDC’s executive committee that the company has already signed a performance agreement that includes no local incentives. It will get state tax credits because of the 51 jobs its move will create.
The EDC helped the company identify real estate west of the Intracoastal Waterway, where it will locate.
Lofton wouldn’t give the name of the company or what it manufactures.
He did say that it is not connected with the gun industry.
Lofton said the company’s CEO has already purchased real estate in Horry County.
