JR Automation Technologies, LLC, a global leader in custom automation solutions, will invest $3.4 million to expand its existing operations in Pickens County, South Carolina. The company will be moving into a 50,000-square-foot build-to-suit facility in Pickens County Commerce Park.

Established in 1980 and based in Holland, Michigan, JR Automation Technologies provides custom automated equipment and services to customers in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, medical device, pharmaceutical, food processing, construction and more.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of our new facility, and we are grateful for all the support we have received from the community here in South Carolina. JR’s rapid growth is truly a testament to the strength of our relationships with our customers, suppliers and neighbors, and to the dedication of all our employees. We look forward to seeing that growth continue at our new facility,” said JR Automation Technologies CEO Bryan Jones.

“JR Automation’s $3.4 million investment in Pickens County will mean 56 new jobs, and it’s more great news for one of our rural areas. Thanks to JR Automation’s commitment, we have another reason to celebrate, but more than that, we have all the motivation we need to keep Team South Carolina focused on bringing home the next economic development win for the state,” Governor Nikki Haley said.

“Pickens County is delighted to partner with JR Automation Technologies again as their business grows and thrives. We are confident that the partnership we have will continue to help the company. Our workforce, our technical education and our commitment to a business-friendly community will support JR Automation as they expand into this new facility in the Commerce Park. We look forward to watching this company’s continued achievements for many years to come,” Pickens County Council Chairman Jennifer H. Willis noted.
