More than 21 new jobs will be created with the $6.3 million metal recycling company GESCRAP is making in Union County, South Carolina.
This will be the company's first facility in the Southeastern region of the United States. The new GES Recycling plant will be housed at 1723 Jonesville Highway in Union.
“This is an exciting project, and South Carolina has offered the perfect gateway to land our business model into the U.S.," GESCRAP CEO Iñaki Velasco said. "We are confident that this will be a success story from the very beginning, and we thank the South Carolina State Government, all the Upstate institutions involved and, in particular, Union County officials for its dedicated support and assistance in getting our operations up and running in a record time.”
GECRAP is based in Spain and operates facilities in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
"This investment by an international firm in our community further reinforces that Union County is a great place to do business,” Frank Hart, Union County supervisor and council chairman, said.
