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

    4/20: marijuana legalization advocates quiet in the Lowcountry

    April 20th is the day marijuana advocates have long used to promote the drug's legalization. At a smoke shop on Folly Road Sunday, no customers would discuss marijuana use, but admitted to waiting outside four hours before the store opened its doors so they could invest in deals on pipes. Meanwhile in Denver this weekend, business is booming. The state claims millions of dollars in revenue since pot was legalized and the once feared crime increase has not materialized. Vape pens are essentia...

    A bill filed this week could be a game changer for South Carolina beer breweries. "It will increase production, right now they're limited to 2,000 barrels of beer a year. This would really raise the stakes to 500,000," Brook Bristow, attorney for the SC Beer Association said. Bristow wrote the bill that's called the "Stone Bill," intended to lure Stone Brewing to the Palmetto State. They're a west coast brewery looking to expand on the east coast. Opponents say this bill could hurt local busi...
