Roy Metal Finishing (RMF) is expanding its current operations in South Carolina by building a second facility in Greenville County’s Matrix Business and Technology Park. The company has added more than 100 jobs since its 2011 expansion, and the new $16 million investment is expected to generate another 40 jobs over the next two years.
“The region’s automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment manufacturers continue to drive our growth,” said RMF President and CEO John Pazdan. “We are seeing increased demand in our core businesses of electroplating, electrocoating and powder coating, as well as growth in warehousing, supply chain management and third party inspection. We continue to innovate to offer unmatched comprehensive solutions for assembly operations throughout the Southeast.”
RMF, the largest metal finishing company on the East Coast, currently operates three facilities in Greenville County, and serves many of the I-85 corridor’s automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment suppliers. Founded in 1961 as Roy Metal Finishing, RMF focuses on automated processes and chemical controls, introducing the latest in environmentally-friendly corrosion protection for aluminum and steel stampings, extrusions, castings and forgings.
“To see one of our existing companies succeed to the point that it is able to continue to invest and create jobs here is a real reason to celebrate,” said Gov. Nikki Haley. “RMF’s $16 million investment, and the 40 new jobs it will create, will make a real difference in Greenville County, and we couldn’t be more excited that this fantastic company continues to show its commitment to our state and to our people.”
Construction on the new facility is expected to be complete by June 2016 and will provide an additional 85,000 square feet.
