This is the fifth year in a row the Belton plant has been named a Palmetto Shining Star by the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. In order to receive this recognition, employers must meet at least one of a number of safety criteria, including working one million or more safe work hours without a lost-time injury or illness.
