The Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC) has announced that Solvay, a manufacturer of advanced materials and specialty chemicals, has completed the installation of its new thermoplastic composites (TPC) production unit at its Greenville, SC location.
The new line, when fully operational, is expected to generate 30 additional jobs at its new 27,000-square-foot dedicated facility located at 7139 Augusta Road in Piedmont.
The Greenville facility is part of a recent series of strategic investments made by the Group in order to establish the infrastructure needed for the rising TPC market.
“The thermoplastic composites solutions that will be manufactured in our Greenville facility will help our energy, aerospace and automotive customers achieve better environmental responsibility and affordability by offering more lightweight solutions that deliver superior performance,” said Mike Finelli, President of Growth Platforms at Solvay.
Greenville County received a $200,000 Set-Aside grant from the Coordinating Council for Economic Development to help with site preparation.
“Solvay’s expansion is yet another example of the unparalleled success companies are finding in South Carolina. We thank Solvay for their continued partnership with our state and look forward to their future growth in Greenville County and beyond,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster.
