Door maker set to get tax break to come to Lexington County

County Council gave initial approval Tuesday to a property tax credit estimated to be worth up to $50,000 over two years to Marwin Co. to help the firm move to a site near Columbia Metropolitan Airport from Richland County.

A speciality door manufacturer is getting a tax break from Lexington County that officials say will help the company renovate its new facility.

County Council gave initial approval Tuesday to a property tax credit estimated to be worth up to $50,000 over two years to Marwin Co. to help the firm move to a site near Columbia Metropolitan Airport from Richland County.

The company will bring about 40 jobs, county economic development director Chuck Whipple said.

It makes a variety of doors, such as folding ones for closets and attics as well as pocket entries.

Marwin is returning to its roots in the Cayce area, where it was founded in 1947, according to a history on its website.

The company relocated to Lower Richland in 1954 and operates another facility in Texas, the history says.

Overall, Marwin has about 80 employees.

Efforts to reach company officials for comment Tuesday were unsuccessful.
