Since its founding in 1899, Sonoco has been headquartered in Hartsville, SC, and employs nearly 3,000 people across the Carolinas in multiple locations. During the storm, its corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations in Hartsville were significantly impacted, as were several production locations in North Carolina.
“We know that many of our employees and their loved ones are facing challenges and hardships after Hurricane Florence,” said Rob Tiede, Sonoco president and CEO. “The Carolinas have faced several historic weather events in recent years, and each time we come back stronger than ever. Sonoco is committed to being a part of this rebuilding process in our hometown, in the communities we serve, and wherever our employees call home.”
