Plywoods - Plastics Corporation
??This complex, opened in
1942 as Plywoods - Plastics
Corporation, has been
significant in the industry
and economy of Hampton and
the lowcountry ever since.
??In 1941 Plywood Products
Corporation bought this
site from the town and the
Hampton & Branchville RR.
??It moved its operations
here from Michigan to make
plywood and laminated
plastics for building
construction and various
household applications.

Westinghouse Micarta Division
Westinghouse bought this plant
in 1951 as a branch
of its Micarta Division.
Until 1995 the Decorative
Division made countertops
and furniture while the
Industrial Division made
components for the U.S.
Navy and NASA, among other
clients. The plant, which
employed 1200 at its peak,
was sold to International
Paper in 1995, then to
Kohlberg & Co. in 2002,
making laminates under the
brand name Nevamar.
