Nebraska company plans South Carolina plant

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A Nebraska company will create nearly 90 jobs when it builds a cold-storage warehouse in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Commerce Department said Wednesday that Millard Refrigerated Services will build the distribution facility in North Charleston.

The company will spend $42 million on the plant that will employ 87 people.

The plant will freeze and store poultry, pork and beef products for export.

Work on the building should begin in the spring with hiring to start in the summer. The plant is expected to begin operations in 2014.

The Omaha, Neb., company was founded in 1963 and has three dozen facilities around North America.
