Husqvarna North America, maker of lawn mowers, chainsaws, and other lawn and garden equipment, plans to invest $105 million to expand its operations in South Carolina's Orangeburg County over the next 13 years. Husqvarna plans to invest $30 million by the end of 2013 and another $75 million by the end of 2024.

“The expansion of our Orangeburg plant will help our company remain competitive and make our operations more efficient,” said Michael Jones of Husqvarna North America in a statement released by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Orangeburg County and the Central SC Alliance. "South Carolina has proven to be an ideal fit for our operations, providing us with a thriving business environment, a talented workforce and exceptional access to markets."

Husqvarna announced in May of this year that it would close its plant in Beatrice, NE, and move all zero-turn mower production to Orangeburg, SC. Equipment is currently being relocated from Beatrice to Orangeburg with the intention of closing the Nebraska plant by year-end. The plant in Orangeburg has been in operation since the 1970s and currently produces garden tractors, tillers, and other outdoor power equipment.

In 2010 Husqvarna also established a parts distribution operation in Lexington County, South Carolina.
