ITECH South, LLC, the Palmetto State operations of Injection Technology Corporation, is expanding its existing plant in Oconee County, South Carolina. The $6.03 million investment is expected to create 34 new jobs at the company’s Westminster facility over the next five years.
Expansion of Itech’s Oconee County facility, located at 7090 South Highway 11 in Westminster includes the construction of a 32,000-square-foot addition to the company’s existing building. ITECH will also be adding seven new molding machines and two new shipping doors to the facility. Construction is expected to conclude in the second quarter of 2015.
“Since beginning operations in South Carolina in 2008, we have been very pleased with our S.C. facility and the quality of workers we have. The expansion will enable us to better serve our customers and to continue to grow the business. The incentive package from Oconee County and the state was very helpful in our decision to expand,” said ITECH South, LLC President Carl Morris.
Established in 1987 and headquartered in Arden, North Carolina, ITECH aims to provide a broad range of molding-based services to its diverse customer-base. The company provides specific services such as product and packaging design, material selection, prototype development, mold flow and mold design.
“It’s always an exciting time when we can celebrate the success of a South Carolina company. ITECH’s decision to expand in Oconee County is a big win for the company and for our entire state, and the 34 jobs it will create will make a real difference in the lives of South Carolinians,” Governor Nikki Haley said.
