Progressive Packaging Founder and President Named Hampton County Ambassador For Economic Development

Our new warehouse and distribution center in Early Branch came with a commitment to bring jobs, and economic development, into the Lowcountry. Due to our President Russ Crowe’s immediate interest in and commitment to Hampton County, where Early Branch is located, he’s been named the Ambassador for Economic Development for Hampton County!

This award is prestigious, but is doubly exciting as Mr. Crowe was nominated by Hampton County’s own economic development organization. Mr. Crowe will attend a special recognition ceremony and reception in Columbia as part of this honor. Governor Nikki Haley will make remarks and present the awards themselves in the Governor’s Mansion Complex on Thursday, April 2nd in the afternoon.

We here at Progressive Packaging have been excited to work with Hampton County, and are thrilled to see Mr. Crowe receive this honor thanks to their nomination!

Progressive Packaging is proud to announce the grand opening of our Hampton County location!

We were pleased to welcome Sandy Fowler from the Hampton County Economic Development Council, along with several mayors and dignitaries, the sheriff of Hampton County, members of the police force, and the Commissioner of Utilities.

Also in attendance was one of our new neighbors, Faye Gooding. Faye is the Chief Executive Officer of Le Creuset, the premier manufacturer of high-end cookware. Le Creuset has a facility right next door to our facility in Early Branch.
