Two companies will be bringing jobs to the Midlands within the next few months.

China Jushi, a fiberglass products manufacturer, is creating 400 jobs to build a production facility in Lower Richland County. The new plant is expected to generate about $300 million for the local economy. It will be located in Pineview Industrial Park off Shop Road.

A groundbreaking ceremony for China Jushi will take place on December 8.

Also, Amazon is relocating its bookmaking warehouse from North Charleston to the Midlands to be closer to the West Columbia distribution site.

The move would create 149 jobs for the area after Amazon’s Lowcountry facility closing in February 2017.

Applications for jobs with either company can be found on their respective websites.
