ACS, a global supplier which specializes in the integration of engine and vehicle test operations into clients’ production and development facilities, will establish a regional office in Greenville, South Carolina.
Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin ACS has offices in China and England. The company will locate operations in approximately 4,000 square feet at 55 East Camperdown Way in Greenville, upfitting the space to accommodate its engineering, planning, sales, marketing and administrative operations. The company serves such industry leaders as Cummins, Caterpillar, Daimler, Harley Davidson, GE, John Deere, Navistar and Tognum, specializing in the comprehensive design, construction, integration, and commissioning of complex industrial, R&D and manufacturing facilities.
“Our goal is to provide a single source for complete project responsibility that customers the world over turn to and count on when undertaking complex projects,” said Lee Cockrum, managing director of ACS Southeast, who will head the new office. “We are a company who values long term relationships and commitment, both to our clients and our communities, and we appreciate the support of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and all who assisted in making this advancement a reality.”
“ACS has developed a strong expertise in engine and vehicle research facilities design and construction,” said Cockrum. “By combining that with our knowledge of industry regulations, testing technology and applications, and the ability to fully integrate facility and test systems, we believe that Greenville’s central location in the Southeastern automotive corridor and its strong base of automotive manufacturers and suppliers will create great synergy and opportunity for our firm.”
ACS is recruiting both locally and nationally for positions in the areas of facilities project engineering, project management, and controls engineering.
“The choice by ACS to locate in Greenville is another indication that South Carolina’s reputation in the automotive club remains strong. Our state’s automotive sector continues to be a source of wealth creation and jobs for communities across our state. For more than two decades now, automotive companies have seen the Palmetto State as just right for business,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
