An Abbeville County distributor of fireplace doors, screens and countertops is creating 30 jobs over the next five years as part of an expansion plan, officials announced on Tuesday.

Stoll Industries, located at 153 Highway 201, is spending $1.1 million on a 17,000-square-foot addition to its plant, creating space for additional production areas and new products.

The work is expected to be completed by January, and Abbeville County received a $100,000 rural infrastructure fund grant to assist with related costs.

“It’s a special day whenever an existing South Carolina company announces plans to expand, as it sends a message to the world that we live up to our commitment to being business friendly,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement.

“I congratulate Stoll Industries on this new investment, and look forward to continuing our successful partnership.”

Abbeville County Council chairman Harold Prince also welcomed the news.

“It’s always a pleasure to hear about a long-standing Abbeville business announcing an expansion,” he said.

“Stoll Industries is an important part of our community and an ambassador in spreading the name of Abbeville County as an area where businesses can flourish.”
