Aran Packaging, a leader in the liquid packaging industry, is establishing its first facility in the U.S. in Greer, South Carolina.
Aran, established in Israel in 1983, is investing $5.2 million in the new facility in Greenville County, which is expected to create 63 new jobs throughout the next five years.
“A testament to Aran’s vision for growth and innovation, we are excited to be expanding into the U.S. market and, specifically, into South Carolina,” Aran Packaging CEO Lior Mor said. “Because of its geographic location, an excellent business atmosphere and superb workforce, we believe that South Carolina is the ideal spot for us to open our first U.S. facility. We thank the state of South Carolina, Greenville County and city of Greer for their support and look forward to opening our facility in July 2016, as well as hiring many great people to work in that facility. At Aran we know that our success is dependent on the individual success of each and every employee.”
Aran is the latest in an influx of companies that have been moving to the South Carolina region. The company has facilities serving clients around the world, including in Europe.
