WINNSBORO, S.C. (AP) - A company that makes televisions is moving a plant from China to Fairfield County, bringing 500 new jobs.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced the $7.5 million Element Electronics plant Thursday. The plant will be located in Winnsboro inside a building that's been vacant for several years. Production should start in December.

Element Electronics says it will make flat-screen televisions at the plant. Officials say they picked Fairfield County because it is close to major distribution centers for Wal-Mart, Target and shopping channel QVC.

The company will be given job creation credits and a rural infrastructure grant of $1.3 million.
