Materials Sciences Corporation, a technology-driven designer and advanced manufacturer of composite materials and structures for government and industry, plans to expand its presence in Greenville, South Carolina. The company’s $2.7 million capital investment is projected to create 23 new jobs over the next five years.
The company’s new, 32,000-square-foot facility will be located at 101 Pelham Davis Circle in Greenville and will complement continuing operations at MSC’s existing facility, which is situated at the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center in Greenville.
The new facility will allow for increased research and development opportunities, as well as the manufacturing and commercialization of advanced composites for use in commercial applications.
“Our mission is to continuously develop, test, improve and manufacture advanced materials that can be transferred into applications of high value. We have been very pleased with our operations in Greenville County and South Carolina and look forward to continuing to grow and contribute to the success of the Palmetto Statem,” Materials Sciences Corporation President & CEO Tom Cassin said.
“We’re proud to celebrate anytime a company decides to strengthen its commitment to our state and its people. This is a milestone for Materials Sciences Corporation and Greenville County, and I’m excited to see such a strong partnership continue to thrive moving forward,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
“Companies like Materials Sciences Corporation find success in South Carolina thanks to the pro-business environment we’ve worked hard to cultivate. I congratulate both Materials Sciences Corporation and Greenville County on this wonderful announcement and look forward to seeing the Upstate manufacturing community continue to grow,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.
