More than $9.4 million investment to create 108 new jobs

INDIAN LAND, S.C. –  McClancy Seasoning, a leading food product innovation and manufacturing company, today announced plans to expand its Lancaster County operations. The investment of over $9.4 million is projected to create 108 new jobs, more than doubling the company’s employment.

Founded in 1947, McClancy Seasoning began as manufacturer of spices for sausage makers in the Carolinas. In 1983, the company moved its operations to Lancaster County and has grown into one of the largest spice companies in the Southeast. Today, the company produces a variety of seasonings and serves as a full-service food production company offering ready-to-prepare food products and convenience items. The family-owned company’s research and development center creates distinctive and customizable products to meet the demands of a fast-paced and constantly changing market.

With two locations in Indian Land, McClancy Seasoning is expanding operations at both facilities. The company is adding a 20,000-square-foot expansion at its location at One Spice Road and a 50,000-square-foot expansion at its facility located at 8746 Charlotte Highway. The expansions will enable the company to significantly grow production and distribution capabilities for major fast food restaurants, food manufacturers and the company’s private label packaging.

The expansion is expected to be completed by September 2021. Individuals interested in joining the McClancy Seasoning team should visit http://www.mcclancy.com/contact.
