Unitex has selected Anderson, South Carolina, as the site to expand its synthetic products production. The company will invest $4 million and create 40 jobs in the next five years.
"Unitex USA is excited about establishing its first U.S. manufacturing operation in Anderson, South Carolina," said Jim Posa, CEO of Unitex USA. "We feel very strongly that there is significant opportunity for a company like ours that brings state-of-the-art manufacturing and a unique product portfolio to the lifting and safety industries. We expect to energize the industry and grow rapidly in our targeted markets."
The company produces synthetic lifting slings and tie-downs for the industrial lifting and material handling industries. Unitex expects the facility to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2011.
