Officials from Columbia, South Carolina-based Nason Co. recently announced the company's plans to expand its operations in Oconee County — a $2.5 million investment that will create 26 new jobs.
“Oconee County and the Upstate community continue to provide a strong home for our operation," Nason's President Stephen Mihaly said. "These are exciting times for the Nason Company and we appreciate the continued support of the local and state governments.”
Nason Co.'s focus is the manufacture of electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic components. For more than six decades, the company has produced components such as switches, cylinders and transducers that are used by military and industrial companies.
Nason's Oconee County facility is located at 1307 S. Highway, Walhalla. The expansion will add 30,000 square feet to the plant; hiring for the new jobs is expected to begin near the end of the third quarter of this year.
“Nason has been a wonderful corporate citizen of Oconee for many years and seeing this growth occur is highly encouraging on many fronts," Oconee County Council Chair Paul Cain said. "This expansion means that even more first-class products will continue to be made in Oconee to satisfy a global customer base, and it further confirms that Oconee has the right business climate and the skilled workforce that thriving businesses need.”
