Ecodual announces multimillion dollar project in Beaufort

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

EcoDual Inc., a provider of dual fuel conversion systems for Class 8 trucks, has announced a $13 million investment in Beaufort County.

The company plans to build a new manufacturing facility in Beaufort County. The company specializes in systems that allow diesel truck engines to transition to natural gas, which is cheaper.

In order to provide the right equipment for this project, the Beaufort City Council is purchasing a diesel dynometer. City leaders believe this is sure to bring plenty of business to the area.

"By having this unique piece of equipment located in Beaufort County, we're very confident we will be able to attract complementary businesses. Other businesses will want to take advantage of and utilize that equipment," Beaufort County Councilman Jerry Stewart said.

This project is estimated to bring 307 jobs over the next five years.
