Roy Metal Finishing (RMF) officials recently announced plans for the company to make a $16-million investment in Greenville County, South Carolina.
RMF is the largest metal finishing company in the nation’s East Coast region. An expansion of the company’s operations in Greenville County — which include three plants — will create a minimum of 40 new jobs over the next two years, officials said.
“The region’s automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment manufacturers continue to drive our growth,” RMF president and CEO John Pazdan said. “We are seeing increased demand in our core businesses of electroplating, electrocoating and powder coating, as well as growth in warehousing, supply chain management and third-party inspection. We continue to innovate to offer unmatched comprehensive solutions for assembly operations throughout the Southeast.”
RMF’s Greenville County facilities are located in the Matrix Business and Technology Park. The new expansion will add 85,000 square feet and is expected to be completed and in use by June.
“It has been exciting for us to watch one of our own, a homegrown company fueled by entrepreneurship, seek and fill unique niches in the market and then grow further by branching into multiple industrial sectors,” Greenville County Council chair Bob Taylor said.
Founded in 1961, RMF serves customers in the automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment sectors. The company’s focus is on automated processes and chemical controls; the plants produce corrosion protection products for aluminum and steel stampings, extrusions, castings and forgings.
