Meyer Tool Inc. a high-tech supplier to the gas turbine engine industry, will more than triple the footprint of its manufacturing operation in Greenville County, South Carolina, initially investing an additional $5 million and adding at least 50 new jobs. MTI purchased and will renovate an approximately 85,000 square foot building at 7640 Pelham Road near Interstate 85.
MTI specializes in electrical discharge machining, laser machining and welding, water jet machining, abrasive grinding, coating and other processes required to provide a single-source solution for airfoils and other hot section turbine components. The company holds AS9100 and NADCAP certifications for all special processes.

"We take great pride in offering the aerospace and gas turbine engine industries a 'one stop' approach to doing business, and this expanded facility is a key strategic investment in our future growth and success. We appreciate the support and leadership of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the South Carolina Department of Commerce and all who assisted in making this expansion a reality,” said Chris Urban, general manager of Meyer Tool's Greenville operations.
"It is a great day in South Carolina and a great day to celebrate as Meyer Tool announces their commitment to expand in Greenville County. Their $5 million investment and 50 new jobs will impact Greenville now and in the years to come,” Governor Nikki Haley said.

We celebrate their growth and success as a valued member of the business community here in Greenville County,” said Dr. Bob Taylor, board member of the Greenville Area Development Corporation and chairman of Greenville County Council.
