Palmetto Engineering is making a $1.2 million investment in Anderson County, South Carolina, by expanding its operations in Piedmont.
“Palmetto Engineering has its roots in Anderson County, and we are excited to continue our investment here," Palmetto Engineering President and CEO George Wyatt said. "We look forward to a bright future and to making a difference in our own community.”
The expansion will create 25 new jobs over the next five years. The company has acquired a 20,000-square-foot facility at 3017 Highway 153. It is expected to be up and running by the fourth quarter of 2016.
"It is extremely satisfying to see Palmetto Engineering, one of our longtime local industries, prosper and need to grow beyond their current facilities," Anderson County Councilman Ken Waters said. "Their $1.2 million investment and the addition of 25 jobs with above average wages, demonstrates their strong commitment to our community. Additionally, this expansion will transform an existing, vacant building in district six into a thriving business.”
Palmetto Engineering's focus is on telecommunications engineering, industrial electrical engineering and GIS telecommunications software.
