Where you can apply for one of 40 new jobs in St. George

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE TO THIS STORY: Comact is no longer taking applications for these jobs. However, if you need a job, the St. George QuickJobs Training Center may still be able to help you find and/or train for another job.

Earlier this week, the BID Corporation announced plans to open the plant, which will manufacture equipment that is used in the forestry industry.

The plant is actually a subsidiary of BID, Comact USA. The Canadian company is renovating a large warehouse building that is just off highway 78 in St. George.

Trident Technical College is helping with the project in several ways.

They were taking applications for the jobs at their Dorchester County QuickJobs Training Center in St. George.

Yesterday afternoon, Trident officials met with officials from Comact. Trident is going to help by training those employees for their new jobs.

Because the plant is not yet operable, officials with Comact are already at the QuickJobs Training site, using a classroom there as their temporary office.

Bob Walker is the Vice President for Economic Development at Trident Tech. He says these are just a few of the ways Trident is helping bring jobs to the Lowcountry, "When we look at economic development, and when we look at bringing businesses into the Charleston area, we like to think we are an integral part of providing that trained workforce."

If you would like more information on jobs in the Dorchester County area, or other available jobs, visit the Trident QuickJobs site in St. George. You can find more information about where they are located at the following link, http://www.tridenttech.edu/stgeorge.htm
