Dust Solutions, Inc. to build in Commerce Park

The investment on Hargray’ s part was one of the key factors in the City being able to announce tonight the first new manufacturing company to build and expand their business in Commerce Park.

Dust Solutions, Inc.’s has made the decision to expand and build its new production facility in Beaufort’s Commerce Park. A manufacturer of environmental technology, Dust Solutions, Inc. (DSI) works with industrial clients around the world to resolve fugitive dust challenges in complex and critical work environments. They will bring to the Commerce Park a new 12,000-15,000 square ft. state of the art manufacturing facility and will employ 20 plus employees. Headed by Richard Posner, President and Aura Posner, Vice President, the new Beaufort facility will house corporate, engineering and production functions along with sales offices located in Vancouver, Washington; Santiago, Chile; and Manila, Philippines.

Aura Posner stated “when evaluating DSI’s location strategy, our team assessed several factors including availability of infrastructure, access to well-established and growing transportation corridors for our international business, and importantly, active participation by state and local government and infrastructure partners to support our mission and growth. The City of Beaufort’s commitment to supporting manufacturing businesses such as DSI was integral in our decision-making process.”

Dust Solutions, Inc., known to the Beaufort economic team members as Project “Catalyst,” made its decision to move to the Commerce Park after meetings with Councilman Murray’s team, the project developer and contractor, and Hargray executives who provided the assurances that High Speed Fiber would be made available in the Commerce Park.

Bill Prokop, City Manager for the City of Beaufort stated “it has been a pleasure working closely with the Posner’s over the last several months to be sure that the City could provide the needs for their expansion. They have a great company and it is going to be the “Poster Child” for further development in our Commerce Park. We welcome them to the City of Beaufort.”

Stephen Murray stated, “Economic Development and the creation of new well-paying jobs is one of our key goals as a City and I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with the Posner’s and I am confident that the code name that we gave them of “Catalyst” will be factual and will lead to other new companies joining us in Commerce Park and I thank them for their future investment and confidence in our City.”
