ZEB Metals Relocating and Establishing First South Carolina Operations in Berkeley County
COLUMBIA, S.C. – ZEB Metals, as part of a newly established joint venture with Glencore, announced plans to establish its first South Carolina operations in Berkeley County. The company’s new operations will create 28 new jobs.
ZEB Metals’ new facility, relocated from Kentucky to a facility near Highway 52 in Moncks Corner, will process dross and other types of secondary aluminum scrap that would otherwise be destined for a landfill. This is the first secondary re-melt facility of its kind in the Southeastern United States.
According to a South Carolina Department of Commerce release, ZEB Metals President and CEO Cole Lanham said, “ZEB Metals is very excited about relocating our company to the Lowcountry and cannot wait to be a part of the community. South Carolina brings a unique opportunity in the recycling space with local businesses and government support. We’d like to thank everyone at Berkeley County for all their help in making this project come to life.”
John F. Wall IV acted as legal counsel for ZEB Metals on this project, assisting the company with negotiating and implementing tax incentive packages and all other due diligence matters. Robin C. Stanton assisted with the real estate transaction, John W. Roberts assisted with the corporate work, and Chad N. Johnston assisted with the environmental due diligence for the project.
