Energy & Recycling

Posted on 28 June 2012

People don’t realize recycling is a self-sustaining industry that creates jobs and decreases the amount of energy we use to manufacture new products. A recycling company, PyroTec, plans to spend $10 million to set up their new global corporate headquarters in Charleston, South Carolina.  South Carolina is known for housing some of the most successful and innovative companies in the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing and technology industries.

“South Carolina gives us an excellent business environment, and we look forward to growing our business here,” said John Burns, CEO of PyroTec.

PyroTec extracts materials from scrap tires and plastics to sell as commodities.  The company will open the new location July 1 and will start hiring throughout July.

“We are pleased to move forward with setting up our new operations in the Charleston area. South Carolina gives us an excellent business environment, and we look forward to growing our business here. We appreciate the support we’ve received from state and local officials,” said John Burns, CEO of PyroTec.

“Announcements like this show that we are on the right track with regards to economic development,” Gov. Haley said.
