“We are very excited to take this next step in our development,” Jim Harwood, president, Carolina Metal Castings, said according to the Jasper County Sun Times. “The South Carolina Department of Commerce along with other government agencies have been very helpful in making this expansion possible.”
Carolina Metal Castings does tooling and completes moldings, castings and heat treatments as well.

“Carolina Metal Castings’ decision to expand its South Carolina operations is a huge win for the company and for our state as a whole,” said South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. “We’re excited to congratulate the company on the success they’ve found here, this $3 million investment, and the 13 new jobs it means for Jasper County.”
Harry Williams, mayor, Hardeeville, echoed those comments.
