Enor not toying around
Gov. Nikki Haley, executives from Enor and local officials announced that Enor is establishing a new manufacturing facility in Winnsboro, Fairfield County. The family-owned manufacturer of plastic toys, outdoor games and junior sports items will supply U.S.-made toys to Walmart stores. The multi-million-dollar investment is expected to create 151 jobs in the area.
The announcement was made in Winnsboro and in Denver, Colorado, where Walmart is hosting its second annual U.S. Manufacturing Summit for its global supplier base. Enor is the fifth Walmart supplier announcing a new facility in the state since August 2013.
Enor’s investment will amplify delivery of U.S.-made toys to retail stores, supporting local jobs while significantly shortening the distance between production and customer. The Northvale, New Jersey-based company will be locating in a 78,000-square-foot former golf-cart distribution facility.
Enor officials expect to begin limited operations in September and accelerate production rapidly over the next nine months. It intends to transfer the majority of its off-shore production to the new facility and will also be investing in growing its portfolio of new products to be Made in U.S.A.
