Röchling Automotive USA Invests $5.8 Million To Expand Production At Duncan, South Carolina, Manufacturing Complex

Germany-based Röchling Automotive USA, a North American subsidiary of R?chling Automotive Group, is expanding its operations to a 150,000 square foot facility in Duncan, South Carolina. The company is investing $5.8 million in the facility, which serves as its North American headquarters, creating 25 new jobs in Spartanburg County.

To accommodate new business and increased customer demand, Röchling Automotive USA is investing in new equipment at its Spartanburg County facility, which will allow the company to accommodate higher production volumes. Located at 245 Parkway East in Duncan, the new machinery is expected to be fully operational in early 2016.

Focusing on the automotive industry the company provides automobile manufacturers with solutions ?for lower aerodynamic drag, better thermal management and improved sound, making the best out of its competencies in plastics and system expertise.

“Spartanburg County has been home to our North American Headquarters for nearly 15 years, and we are glad to continue our growth here. As our company has expanded over the years, the support of both the State of South Carolina and Spartanburg County has been greatly appreciated. R?chling Automotive is dedicated to providing industry-leading products to our customers, and we are doing it very successfully with our talented local employee base. We believe that continuing to invest in our existing facilities will keep our company on the leading edge of automotive thermoplastic process technologies and position us well for sustained growth,” R?chling Automotive USA LLP Vice President Justin White said.

“Few projects give Spartanburg County as much pleasure as seeing one of our existing companies continue to grow, diversify and expand as Röchling Automotive has done over the years. With this investment comes a physical expansion into a vacant 150,000-square-foot facility and the addition of several well-paying jobs. We are proud to have Roechling call Spartanburg home for their North American Headquarters. They are a great corporate citizen, and we are thankful for the hundreds of jobs they create in our community,” David Britt, Chairman of the Economic Recruitment and Development Committee of Spartanburg County and member of the Economic Futures Group Board said.

"The success of great corporate citizens like R?chling motivates Team South Carolina to keep fighting for tax relief, education reform and workforce training so we can keep our economic development momentum going. R?chling's expansion is a win for Duncan, a win for Spartanburg County and a win for the entire state,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
