COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina’s governor says a Chinese fiberglass manufacturer is expected to create 400 jobs when it opens a manufacturing operation in Richland County.

Gov. Nikki Haley said in a news release Tuesday that China Jushi also is expected to invest $300 million in the 80,000-ton production line during the first phase. The plant will be the company’s first fiberglass manufacturing operation in the U.S.

The plant will be located in Pineview Industrial Park in Columbia. Officials say the company expects to begin construction in the fourth quarter of 2016 and complete the facility within two years.
