$25 Million Expansion of Honeywell Facility to Add 30 Jobs In Greenville County, SC

Honeywell International has announced it will expand its current operations in Greenville County, SC, with a $25 million investment expected to generate 30 new jobs over the next five years. Plans call for the project to be completed sometime in 2016.

As part of the expansion process, Honeywell will install new equipment to help improve the efficiencies of its Greer facility. Ray Kime, site manager for Honeywell, said the plant "is an important part of our overall operations, and this expansion will help it remain competitive. South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business climate and the skilled talent we require."

The Greer facility offers a broad range of repair/overhaul services and capabilities for propulsion engines and component repair for commercial and military customers, particularly in the aerospace sector. It also is the OEM source for more than 300 part numbers. Technical capabilities found here include machining, special processes, NDT, laser welding, tool making and balancing.

Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said the project "builds on our reputation as a player in the aerospace club. South Carolina's business-friendly environment and talented workforce continue to help our existing businesses, like Honeywell, find success."

Since the beginning of 2011, South Carolina has recruited over $75 million in investments and more than 700 new jobs in the aerospace and aviation sector.
