      Tobacco manufacturer adding jobs in Little River

      Representatives from the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation and Laudisi Enterprises Inc., announced Wednesday the expansion of its smoking tobacco manufacturing and pipe distribution operation in Little River, which will create 43 jobs.

      Those interested in applying for employment can go to the company's website at {<}{>} OR send your resume to {<}{>}.

      The community competed with the state of North Carolina for the expansion, that will result in the retention of 37 existing jobs and the creation of 43 new jobs with a capital investment of approximately $255,000.

      "We've been delighted to be able to work with Brad Lofton and the team at MBREDC and Marc Jordan and the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce to help expand our operations in Horry County. Horry County has been our corporate home for more than a decade and their help and guidance has been invaluable as we seek to expand our core operations here, as well as bring our pipe tobacco manufacturing operations presently in North Carolina here over the next eighteen months. We all know what a great place Horry County is to live and work, and we're excited to continue our expansion and bring more of Laudisi Enterprises' operations to the area," said Sykes Wilford, President and Founder of Laudisi Enterprises.

      The MBREDC worked with the leadership team of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber, who helped coordinate all the parties involved in the project.
