Walker Emulsions, a division of Canadian based Walker Industries, opened the plant in Orangeburg in the fall of 2014 to better service new and existing customers in the Southeastern United States.

Walker Industries President & CEO, John Fisher and Walker Emulsions Executive Vice-President, Archie Reynolds travelled from Niagara to make the presentation at an event organized to celebrate the success of local non-profits.

Archie Reynolds stated, “this contribution to the Orangeburg and Calhoun Community reflects a long-standing corporate value of Walker Industries in giving back to our communities, helping to improve the quality of life for all.”

“We are extremely grateful for the gift from Walker Emulsions,” said Chris Worley, Chair of the Community Foundation for Orangeburg and Calhoun Counties Advisory Board. “This generous gift will help strengthen our community and is an example for others to follow.”

The Community Foundation plans to use the gift as a challenge grant to encourage others to help increase the fund’s endowment.
