KRA Operations will invest $23.5 million to expand its factory at the Mid-Carolina Commerce Park in Prosperity, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 120 new jobs.
The company will add 191,209 square feet to the existing 105,000 square foot Newberry County facility.
“It was an honor to establish our company in Newberry County of South Carolina last year. We are excited for the expansion of our company for the future business venture. It is our hope that we will contribute more for the community as we expand our business. We highly appreciate the support of Newberry County, State of South Carolina, and related local businesses,” explained KRA Operations president Wonyoung “William” Chang.
KRA specializes in the production of metal stamped and injection molded parts.
“When you tell the story of places like Newberry County to companies around the world,” explains Central SC Alliance Chairman W. Keller Kissam, “having local industries that take pride in where they are, what they produce and who works for them makes all of our jobs so much easier. KRA Operations’ rapid growth shows other companies that may be debating new locations or expansions how much potential is available right here in the heart of South Carolina.”
