SC diaper plant struggles to meet state job requirements

By Rick Brundrett | The Nerve

Collin Brown III says he’s well aware of a state deadline this year to create 262 jobs and invest $6 million in a diaper production plant in Marion County, or face possible repayment of a $1 million state grant.

It’s unclear, however, whether Brown, president of the Softee Supreme Diaper Corporation, will be able to meet the Sept. 3 deadline, given production problems that he attributes in part to an ongoing federal criminal case involving Jonathan Pinson, former chairman of the South Carolina University Board of Trustees and partner in the diaper company.

“I think the more press (coverage) that happens, it clearly makes it more challenging,” Brown told The Nerve on Saturday.
