Greenville, South Carolina is set to become home to a new PA Solutions plant.
PA Solutions officials recently announced the automation controls engineering company's plans to make $65,000 in new capital investments that will lead to the creation of 40 new jobs.
The new plant will be built at 1045 Keys Dr. The company's U.S. headquarters are also located in Greenville at 300 Executive Center Dr.
“PA Solutions is proud to call South Carolina home," Operations Manager David Mothersbaugh said. "Both Greenville County and the state have been welcoming and supportive as we aim to foster new talent to service the area’s manufacturing automation. We are excited to invest in the Upstate’s workforce by continuing to employ and develop native South Carolinian talent to provide local controls and robotics support to our manufacturing neighbors. I’d like to especially thank our Greenville-based employees, whose remarkable success and development we proudly observe as a benchmark for the tremendous growth potential of PA’s South Carolinian workforce.”
PA Solutions, an independent company that provides automation solutions to customers in the chemical and automotive sectors, was launched in 1986. The company now operates from dozens of locations across the North American and European continents, producing a variety of electrical, instrumentation and control engineering items through electrical design, PLC and robot programming and simulation.
“PA Solutions’ decision to build a new facility in Greenville County is a huge win for both the local community and our entire state," South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said. "The 40 new jobs created by this investment are a real reason to celebrate, and we look forward to watching PA Solutions succeed and grow in South Carolina for many years to come.”
Hiring for the new jobs is expected to begin soon. Those interested in applying for those positions should send resumes and cover letters to Workforce@PA-ATS.com.
"We’re delighted to have PA Solutions in Greenville County and in our growing engineering community," Greenville County Council Chair Bob Taylor said.
