Zero Connect, an assembler and distributor of fiber optic and copper cables, will renovate a portion of an existing building to create 18,000 square-feet of manufacturing space at 182 Kayaker Way in Easley, South Carolina.
The new development, which is expected to create 72 jobs, will lead to an investment of more than $1.3 million in Pickens County.
Zero Connect is a custom cable assembly manufacturer and supplier of off-the-shelf fiber and copper products for voice, data and video applications. With years of experience in the contracting and manufacturing sectors, the company features on-staff industry experts dedicated to meeting customers’ requirements.
“Our expansion to Pickens County in South Carolina will allow Zero Connect to be within a one day ground shipment of the majority of our customers. Our rapidly increasing fiber optic cable assembly business dictated that we find an area with a dedicated and skilled workforce. We feel our new Easley facility will allow us to maintain our leadership in the copper and fiber optic cable assembly and data center businesses,” Zero Connect President Larry Kendall said.
“The investment that Zero Connect is making in the people of South Carolina is a significant commitment to our state and is a real reason to celebrate. The 72 jobs this great company is creating in Easley will make a real difference in the lives of South Carolinians, and we look forward to seeing the impact it will have on this community for years to come,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
