RX Industries, a precision, high-quality computer numerical control machine shop, will invest $9.08 million to expand operations on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 13 jobs.
The company will purchase a larger facility which is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2022.
"For many years, I had a home on Hilton Head Island but traveled across the United States for work. I told people that my wife and kids lived on Hilton Head, and I unfortunately lived in a hotel. I had enough of this lifestyle choice and, together with my brother, made the investment to establish RX Industries on Hilton Head Island. Today, I'm very pleased to say that my business is expanding and my company's growth is happening in a place that I love. We look forward to RX Industries continuing to grow in the defense, aerospace and medical sectors. We also are thrilled to be working with Beaufort County's school district in an effort to expose students to the exciting world of precision machining,” RX Industries Owner Tom Rougeux said.
Founded in 2020, RX Industries specializes in close-tolerance, multi-axis CNC machining and custom solutions for the medical devices, aerospace, defense, munitions and other industries. The new facility will grow the company’s machining capacity to accommodate increased customer demand.
“The success that we’ve seen in economic development in South Carolina is due to great companies like RX Industries continuing to invest and showing their commitment to South Carolinians. Today, we celebrate not only a manufacturing win within our borders, but the growth of one of our existing businesses,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III said.
