SMF Inc., a full-service metal fabrication company, will invest $5.8 million establish its new production facility in Anderson County, South Carolina, with plans to generate 146 jobs over the next five years.
SMF Inc. will locate a new manufacturing plant in an existing building at 131 Harvester Court in Anderson County. The company will provide a range of metal fabrication services, including torch and laser cutting, sawing, forming, machining, welding, painting and assembly. The plant is expected to begin operations in early July.
“Our company continues to expand and we look forward to beginning our operations at our new site in Anderson County. South Carolina provides an excellent location for us, a great business environment and the workforce talent we need. We appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials as we’ve moved forward with our plans,” said Brian Brown, president of SMF Inc.
“It’s exciting to see more companies like SMF Inc. decide to put roots down in South Carolina. We understand what businesses need in order to do well, and more companies are choosing to bring job-creating investments to the Palmetto State. We celebrate SMF’s decision to invest $5.8 million and create 146 new jobs in Anderson County,” said Gov. Nikki Haley. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits.
“Manufacturing continues to be a key part of our economy. South Carolinians know how to make things, and make them well. When a manufacturer like SMF Inc. decides to call the Palmetto State home, it adds to our manufacturing renaissance and creates jobs that help make the surrounding communities sustainable,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
“SMF’s choice to join the Anderson County business community is proof of our growing success to attract a quality company; one which garners 95 percent of its business as a Tier One supplier to original equipment manufacturers,” said Anderson County Council Chairman Francis Crowder.
