GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) - A Missouri company that makes plumbing fixtures will create 77 new jobs in Cherokee County.

Gov. Nikki Haley’s office said Sioux Chief Manufacturing is moving into a closed plant just east of Chesnee in Spartanburg County.

Sioux Manufacturing will move its corporate headquarters and its engineering, manufacturing and warehouse distribution operations to the site.

Jim Cook with the Cherokee County Development Board says the company already has 100 employees and will add 77 more in the expansion.

The company expects to be fully staffed in the next three months.

Chesnee Mayor Max Cash said the town will benefit even though the plant is located just outside the municipal limits and is in Cherokee County.

The company makes plumbing, heating and water quality products for residential, industrial and commercial businesses.
