Electro-Spec Inc. is starting a new production operation in Lexington County.
"In a state that embraces technology and innovation, we believe that our expansion will allow us to become a world-class supplier for electroplating and surface finishing to many of the top companies in the world that currently call South Carolina home,” Electro-Spec President Jeffrey Smith said.
The plating company's 10,000-square-foot facility is expected to create 53 new jobs. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development also approved a $100,000 Closing Fund grant to the county to help upgrade the building.
The new facility is at 307 Industrial Drive in Lexington. The company plans to add new jobs beginning this fall, and those interested in applying can email Sarah Smith at SSmith@electro-spec.com.
Electro-Spec provides cold, silver, copper, nickel and tri-alloy electroplating to clients in North America, Asia and Europe. Electro-Spec generally works with aerospace, medical, automotive and telecommunications industries. They also offer heat-treating and processes to remove impurities from metal parts.
