VOCO America, Inc., a German-based manufacturer of dental materials and subsidiary of VOCO GmbH, plans to expand the company’s North American headquarters in Indian Land, South Carolina. The more than $3.2 million investment is expected to create 15 new jobs in Lancaster County.
Located at 1255 Rosemont Drive in Indian Land, VOCO will construct a new, company-owned 16,000-square-foot facility which will serve as its headquarters and include a state-of-the-art training center. The new facility is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2021.
“VOCO America, Inc. has chosen to expand in Indian Land and Lancaster County for its access to a skilled workforce in the North and South Carolina metro-Charlotte area and the location’s excellent proximity to the Charlotte Douglas International airport, which makes traveling simple and economical. We are committed to our community and will work with several local companies to construct an attractive office building at Rosemont Business Park,” said VOCO America CEO Leif Ebert.
“South Carolina is not only a manufacturing powerhouse, but it is also a top choice for companies to establish their corporate headquarters. We congratulate VOCO on this announcement, and we look forward to continuing this remarkable partnership,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.
VOCO America is a subsidiary of a German dental material manufacturer founded in 1981. Products are used by dentists and technicians in more than 110 countries.
“Lancaster County couldn’t be happier that VOCO America, Inc. is expanding its U.S. headquarters in Indian Land. They are an excellent company, and their decision is reflective of how our community is a strong, welcoming and supportive home for international, domestic and existing businesses,” said Lancaster County Department of Economic Development Executive Director Jamie Gilbert.
