Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

There are 47 new jobs coming to Beaufort County.

The name of the company is DUER High Performance Composites. County officials said the average pay will be $17.26 an hour. 

The mayor of Beaufort and county officials said it's a huge win for Beaufort County.

DUER High Performance Composites serves customers in several industries - including defense, medical, transportation and alternative energy. Everything they manufacture is made of composites - the same type of product Boeing uses to make wings for their planes.

"We're beginning to build a culture where we are a value to the skills and the people in the work force we have here. And hopefully what we will be able to do is to generate our people to stay here and help our community grow, Rather than leave," said Mayor Billy Keyserling.

Duer has already started accepting job applications.
