  At yesterday’s meeting of the Laurens County Development Corporation it was announced that the bidding process for a new ‘spec’ building had been completed.  The successful bidder was Sherman Construction, the same firm that recently completed the extensive addition to theLaurensCountyHospital.


  Total cost for the spec building project will be approximately 1.1 Million Dollars for the 50,000 square foot building.  According LCDC Executive Director Marvin Moss, footers are being poured this week and exterior walls for the new building should be up about six weeks from now.

  Speaking of ZF, we asked Mr. Moss about the number of current employees at ZF.  He says the plant already employs around 700 workers with an eventual employment of about 1200.  The plant has installed about half of their equipment so far he said.
