Ionic Technologies Inc., a company that provides heat treating and coating services to manufacturers to improve wear resistance on metal surfaces, will invest $10 million to double the size of their existing operations in Greenville County, SC. The project is expected to generate at least 13 new positions that the company will begin hiring for in July.
Ionic Technologies will expand its 207 Fairforest Way location from 18,000 square feet to approximately 38,000 square feet, updating the space to a state-of-the-art heat treating and surface engineering facility in the process. The newly developed space also will encompass larger distribution, sales, marketing and administrative operations for the company.
“We are extremely pleased to move forward with our plans to expand operations here in Greenville County, as this initiative will allow us to grow in size, service capabilities and profitability while delivering industry-leading coating capabilities to our customers,” said Ray Monahan, president of Ionic Technologies. “Greenville County and South Carolina have provided an excellent home for our growing business, and we appreciate all the support we have received from the Greenville Area Development Corporation, Department of Commerce, the City of Greenville and other officials.”
“We are pleased that Ionic Technologies has chosen to expand their successful operations here in Greenville County,” said Chris Riley, chairman of the Greenville Area Development Corporation. “Their decision to add quality new jobs here is an important affirmation of one of the county’s focus areas—growing our advanced manufacturing base. Ionic is an innovation-driven enterprise with deep Upstate roots, and a prized member of our business community.”
