Orangeburg, South Carolina

Known as “The Garden City”, Orangeburg is the fifth oldest city in the state of South Carolina and has a population of approximately 14,000. Orangeburg is located 37 miles southeast of Columbia on the banks of the North Fork of the Edisto River. The community was initially founded by an Indian trader in 1704 before becoming an incorporated city in 1883.

Orangeburg’s fertile soil and river location attracted businesses to the area early on. The city soon became a trade and processing center for the textile, clothing, and food distribution industries. Greenwood Mills, Inc., one of the oldest Orangeburg companies opened during this time and maintains facility in the city today. Greenwood Mills manufactures specialty fabrics for apparel, home furnishing, and military markets. Other specialty manufacturing operations located in Orangeburg over the years include yard and gardening products, ball and roller bearings, automotive parts, electronics, and chemicals. Wanamaker Chemical Company was a significant player in Orangeburg’s chemical industry, but was later acquired by Ethyl Gasoline Corporation.

For many years, asbestos containing products were commonly used in manufacturing and industrial settings such as those located in Orangeburg. Workers exposed to asbestos products have the chance of developing mesothelioma, an asbestos-related cancer. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Orangeburg, you should consider contacting an asbestos attorney.
