A company that specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of indoor and outdoor cushions and pillows is moving into Lancaster County, with plans to create 100 jobs over the next five years.
3i Products plans to spend $3 million to renovate an existing 27,000-square-foot building, located on more than 15 acres off S.C. 9 (Chester Highway) in Lancaster.
“We are all very excited to see existing structures return to productive use and appreciate 3i’s investment in capital and in putting Lancaster’s citizens to work,” Lancaster County Council Chairman Bob Bundy said. “We are also appreciative of the combined efforts of the city, state and county to help provide the infrastructure needs to make this investment possible.”
The company expects to be operating by the end of June, with hiring to begin in April.

The state Coordinating Council for Economic Development gave a $150,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Lancaster County to help pay for improvements related to the project. AdvanceSC, a company established by Duke Energy, gave the county a $50,000 grant to help pay for renovating the building.
“3i Products is very excited about our move to the Lancaster area and looks forward to opening our new facility and bringing new jobs and growth to the area,” said 3i Chairman Tim Chen.
