Fitesa Simpsonville Plans $52 Million Expansion In Greenville, South Carolina

Fitesa Simpsonville, Inc., a global leader and innovator in the design and manufacture of nonwoven fabric solutions for the global hygiene market, will further expand its existing facility in Greenville County, South Carolina. The $52 million investment will increase production capacity and is expected to create an additional 38 jobs over the next five years.

To expand its Simpsonville operations, which are located at 840 Southeast Main Street, Fitesa is adding 20,000 square-feet to the existing facility. The company will be making infrastructure improvements and adding equipment to increase production of spunmelt fabrics.

“Our mission is to be the preferred choice for the supply of nonwoven fabrics to the global hygiene industry, and to deliver high quality products with exceptional service and sustainable processes. We are pleased to continue to grow our operations here and appreciate the support of Greenville County in making this announcement a reality,” said Fitesa Global Marketing Director Ray Dunleavy.

The company expects the improvements to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2017, and hiring for the new positions will begin in the spring of 2017.

“It’s another great day in South Carolina as we celebrate Fitesa and its decision to expand in Greenville County. With global headquarters already established in the Upstate, this $52 million expansion and the 38 new jobs it will create further show Fitesa’s fantastic commitment to our state and our people,” Governor Nikki Haley.

Fitesa has been an integral manufacturing partner within the Greenville community for almost 30 years. The company’s growth and continued expansion are a true testament to the County’s workforce and collaborative spirit,” said Greenville County Council Chairman Dr. Bob Taylor.
