ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A manufacturing company that helps supply Caterpillar and other heavy equipment will build a new facility expected to generate 250 new jobs in Anderson County.

McLaughlin Body Company announced Monday that it will open its first facility outside of its home state of Illinois at the industrial complex on Old Pearman Dairy Road, pending final approval by the Anderson County Council on April 15.

The facility is expected to create the new jobs and invest $22 million during the next five years.

The company produces manufacture operator stations and complex metal componentry. The Anderson County facility will supply heavy-equipment manufacturers located across the southern and eastern regions of the country and is the first supplier of the new Caterpillar facility in Georgia to locate in South Carolina.

Hiring is scheduled to begin in late 2013, with the facility slated to be fully running in early 2014.
