MECART, Inc., a leader in cleanroom environments and a manufacturer of custom-designed acoustical modular buildings, will invest $2 million to establish operations in Greenville, South Carolina. The company plans to create 50 jobs.
Located at 208 Old Fork Shoals Road, state officials noted MECART, Inc. has experienced substantial growth in the United States over the past decade and has an aggressive plan for future growth, with the new Greenville County operation bringing the company closer to the local market. The new facility is expected to be operational by late summer 2021.
“We are very excited to call Greenville, S.C. home now. Our new factory will allow us to meet rapidly growing customer demand with our high-quality modular system for cleanrooms and industrial enclosures. This facility, staffed with great people from South Carolina, is a key element to help us achieve our strategic vision,” said MECART, Inc. Vice President of U.S. Operations Charles Lipeles.
