Specialty tire and wheel manufacturer The Carlstar Group LLC is expanding its Aiken facility, which will also result in 43 new jobs.
Plans for the Aiken facility at 23 Windham Blvd. include new equipment and improvements to boost capacity.
“Our Aiken facility is part of the strategic, long-term growth for our company." CEO John Salvatore said. "This investment in people, processes and production will not only help strengthen our ability to provide value for our customers, but also strengthen and grow our ties to the Aiken County community."
The Carlstar Group makes tires and wheels for specialty vehicles used for agriculture, construction and lawn and garden use, as well as ATVs and high-speed trailers.
“This investment by The Carlstar Group in expanding its footprint in South Carolina is a tremendous example of how companies of all sizes can thrive here," Gov. Henry McMaster said. "It’s because of companies like The Carlstar Group that our automotive industry continues to grow and is considered one of the best in the world."
The first new jobs will be added during the first quarter. For information on the job listings, visit http://www.carlstargroup.com/careers.
