EuWe Eugen Wexler US Plastics, Inc., a subsidiary of the Germany-based EuWe Group, is establishing manufacturing operations in Anderson, South Carolina. The automotive supplier is investing $11.1 million to open its first U.S. facility. The investment is expected to create 49 new jobs in Anderson County.
The opening of EuWe’s Anderson County facility will allow the company to better serve its North American customers. Located off of I-85 at Alliance Industrial Park, EuWe’s South Carolina operations will focus on the production of automotive plastic interior parts. EuWe’s Anderson County operations are expected to reach full-scale production by 2017, with hiring expected to begin in the second quarter of 2016.
“EuWe is excited to soon start its first operations in the United States. When looking for the right site, we were impressed by the professionalism and also the welcoming demeanor of the people in South Carolina and especially those in Anderson County. As a company that is still managed by its founding family and one that always plans for the future, we believe we’ll find the best employees here in South Carolina to also make this endeavor a success,” said EuWe Eugen Wexler US Plastics, Inc. CEO Markus Gosse.
“Team South Carolina’s focus on taking care of our businesses and their employees is helping our state become a top destination for international companies, like the EuWe Group, that are looking to expand into the United States. This multi-million dollar investment means 49 new jobs for South Carolinians, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome the EuWe Group to its new home in Anderson County,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
