Techtronic Industries Plans Innovation Center In Anderson County, South Carolina

12/16/2016
Hong Kong-based Techtronic Industries, a global leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of quality consumer, professional and industrial products, is expanding its Power Equipment Group’s operations in Anderson County, South Carolina. The $75 million investment is expected to create 250 new jobs in the Upstate over the next several years.

To continue its growth in Anderson County, TTI is building a new 300,000-square-foot Innovation Center. This latest project complements the company’s $85 million expansion project, which was announced last year and completed this year.

“Continued investment in our people and product innovation is pivotal to TTI’s success. This new world-class campus will provide an exceptional environment for fostering the development of talented associates and industry leading products. We’d also like to thank the State of South Carolina and Anderson County for their continued partnership,” said Mike Farrah and Lee Sowell, Presidents of TTI Power Equipment, Power Tool and Outdoor Products.

“TTI’s decision to expand in Anderson County further strengthens its position as an important part of South Carolina’s manufacturing industry. This $75 million investment, and the 250 new jobs it means for Anderson County, will make a real difference in the lives of South Carolinians, and we look forward to seeing the impact this fantastic company will continue to have on our state for many years to come,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

“Approximately two years ago, TTI announced more than 200 jobs and the construction of an $85 million, 1.3 million square foot TTI Distribution Center at Exit 27 that started great change at this intersection. Today, we are very proud to celebrate the announcement of the TTI Corporate Innovation Center, to be located at the Exit 27 TTI campus, bringing 250 new jobs,” Anderson County Council Chairman Tommy Dunn noted.
