Carolina AAC Ribbon Cutting in Marlboro County


Tuesday, March 22, 2011 – Carolina AAC cut the ribbon on a 70,000 square foot facility in the Marlboro County Industrial Park. The state-of-the-art facility will create 36 initial jobs, with an additional 14-15 operational positions being added shortly after.

Carolina AAC produces Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), a sustainable, light-weight and eco-friendly concrete material that provides temperature-controlling insulation. AAC is used to create internal and external wall systems in residential and commercial structures. It is fire resistant and has been used in Europe and Asia for several decades. With the growing consumer demand and government mandates for green construction, Carolina AAC will be able to provide area architects, engineers and contractors with AAC blocks suitable for projects seeking LEED or similar certification.

This project is the result of a combination of private investment, local and federal grants, loan funding and assistance from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The company has received vital support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the S.C. Energy Office, the S.C. Department of Commerce and Coordinating Council for Economic Development, ArborOne Farm Credit, Marlboro Electric Cooperative, both Marlboro and Marion Counties in South Carolina and the Marlboro County Transportation Committee.
