Fuyao North America Inc. is launching a new processing center in Greenville County.
According to the company, its $16.1 million investment is expected to create approximately 70 new jobs in the area.
The company’s new, 182,000-square-foot processing center with light production capabilities at 110 Milacron Drive in Fountain Inn, S.C., according to the company. It aims to start the hiring process to fill its new positions this quarter.
“We’re excited to welcome Fuyao North America to the South Carolina business community. Any time a company chooses to call South Carolina home, it’s a testament to our great workforce and business-friendly environment. The 70 new jobs will have a big impact in Greenville County,” said Henry McMaster South Carolina Gov.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $100,000 Set Aside grant to Greenville County to assist with costs associated with the project.
“Today marks another chapter for our company as we invest in this new Greenville County processing center. We are thankful for the assistance we have received from the state and county governments, and we look forward to making a difference in the local community,” said Dan Martin, Fuyao North America Inc. general manager.
