It's a good indicator that business is going well in the Palmetto State when a corporation announces plans to expand operations at one of its existing facilities.
That's the case for Röchling Automotive USA LLP in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. Company officials said $5.8 million will be spent on an expansion to the plant, which also serves as Röchling's North American headquarters.
"Few projects give Spartanburg County as much pleasure as seeing one of our existing companies continue to grow, diversify and expand as Röchling Automotive has done over the years," David Britt, chairman of the Economic Recruitment and Development Committee of Spartanburg County and member of the Economic Futures Group Board, said. "With this investment comes a physical expansion into a vacant 150,000-square-foot facility and the addition of several well-paying jobs. Roechling is a great corporate citizen, and we are thankful for the hundreds of jobs they create in our community.”
The expansion will allow Röchling, which is based in Germany, to hire 25 additional workers at the plant, located in Duncan. The project is expected to be completed in early 2016.
“Spartanburg County has been home to our North American Headquarters for nearly 15 years, and we are glad to continue our growth here," Röchling Automotive USA LLP Vice President Justin White said. "As our company has expanded over the years, the support of both the State of South Carolina and Spartanburg County has been greatly appreciated.”
