Daye North America, a subsidiary of Ningbo Daye Garden Machinery Company in China, has announced plans to expand operations in Charleston County, South Carolina, according to that state’s Office of the Governor. The company’s expansion will create additional assembly space for lawn mowers before distribution to local, regional and national retailers.
Founded in 2017, Daye North America develops and produces an array of Mowox-branded outdoor power equipment, including gas-powered and battery-powered lawnmowers, string trimmers, blowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, lawn tractors and zero-turn radius riding mowers.
“Daye North America is pleased to announce the expansion of our South Carolina operations,” says Matt Ragland, Daye North America president. “In the past year, we have been greeted with open arms by the state. We have experienced first-hand the hospitality of South Carolina and the dynamic hardworking people who call it home. We look forward to more opportunities to expand our operations here.”
The company’s $3.5 million investment will create 131 new jobs, the Governor’s Office reports.
“We are excited that Daye North America is expanding just a year and a half after establishing their operations in Charleston County,” says Governor Henry McMaster. “This growth shows that our state has the pro-business environment and workforce in place where companies find success.”
