Colgate-Palmolive to Hire 300 at New S.C. Plant

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Colgate-Palmolive Co. is investing nearly $200 million to establish a new production facility in South Carolina's Greenwood County that will employ 300 workers.

Gov. Nikki Haley announced the decision Monday. Job applications will be accepted beginning in March and employment will ramp up as the plant begins operations near year.

Officials say the company will make liquid hand soap and deodorant at the facility that will be in an existing 525,000-square-foot building.
