Greenwood Fabricating and Plating will invest $17.1 million to expand its existing Greenwood County, SC manufacturing operations. The project is expected to create an additional 31 new jobs at a new manufacturing facility in Hodges, SC.
“Greenwood Fabricating and Plating is excited about the expansion of operations,” said Greenwood Fabricating and Plating President Tim Fender. “Thanks to the hard work of our employees and the support of Greenwood County and South Carolina leaders, the new facility will provide us with the opportunity to add new processes and upgrade technologies for some of our existing products.”
Founded in 1986, Greenwood Fabricating and Plating is a full-service fabrication, machining, assembly and electroplating job shop, providing finished components to a wide variety of manufacturers. Incorporating the latest technology in design and manufacturing, the company offers fabrication and electroplating capabilities for the most intricate parts and assemblies.
“It’s a special day whenever an existing South Carolina company announces plans to expand, as it sends a message to the world that we’re living up to our commitment to being a business-friendly state,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “I congratulate Greenwood Fabricating and Plating on this new investment and look forward to continuing our successful partnership.”
Located in Hodges, SC, Greenwood Fabricating and Plating will build a new manufacturing facility that will complement its existing operations in the city of Greenwood. Hiring for the new positions is projected to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
“South Carolina continues to build on its success in the manufacturing sector, and Greenwood Fabricating and Plating’s expansion will provide another boost,” said Bobby Hitt, Secretary, South Carolina Department of Commerce. “Today’s announcement is further proof that our pro-business efforts are paying off.”
“Greenwood County is a great location for the metal fabrication industry, as shown by Greenwood Fabricating and Plating’s continued growth and deep connection within our community,” said Greenwood Partnership Alliance Chair, Dr. Kristin Manske.
