Officials have announced a $196 million investment that will also bring with it 300 jobs in what they're calling "the single largest first phase investment in Greenwood County's history."

Colgate-Palmolive said Monday that they plan to move into an existing 525,000-square-foot production facility, with operations expected to begin in 2014.

The facility will produce liquid hand soap for the company's Softsoap brand and Mennen Speed Stick deodorant, company officials said in a statement.

The facility is located along Highway 25 North in Hodges.

State officials said they'll open up applications for jobs in March 2014.
