SKC Inc. plans to expand its complex in Covington, investing $100 million to make film for solar panels and other applications.

The company and Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue announced the project Nov. 5. The company expects the new project to create 120 jobs. The new facility will be located on SKC’s existing Covington campus, which also houses SKC’s U.S. corporate headquarters, polyester film production facilities and a chemical systems house that opened in May. The new 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility will be completed in two phases.

SKC first opened its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Covington in May 1999, and it currently makes a variety of Skyrol-brand polyester films on three production lines.
The company expects to begin hiring for the jobs created through the expansion in April.
