DHL to add 149 jobs in Lexington Co.

WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A global shipping company plans to add almost 150 jobs in Lexington County.

DHL Global plans to hire another 149 employees for its processing center on Platt Springs Road. Nearly 380 workers already work at the operation.

Pakradooni says the company could hire more workers later.
