Chart Industries, Inc., a global manufacturer of highly engineered cryogenic equipment, will invest $7 million to establish operations in Richburg, South Carolina. The company plans to create 50 jobs over the next five years in Chester County.
The new operations, which is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2021, will serve as a repair, service and leasing facility for all the company’s products.
“Our repair, service and leasing division is growing over 10% annually as the result of expanding our geographic footprint over the past two years. We have had interest in expanding into the southeastern United States for some time, as many of our customers have large installed bases of products that need refurbishment in the Carolinas. We are thrilled to be breaking ground in our new, 20-acre Richburg, South Carolina location, which brings us proximity to our customers, major interstate roads, economic value and access to skilled talent,” Chart Industries, Inc. CEO and President Jill Evanko noted.
“The 50 new jobs that Chart Industries, Inc. is bringing to Chester County will change the lives of South Carolinians, and for that, we couldn’t be more grateful. We wish this great company all the best on their new endeavor, and I look forward to watching them succeed for years to come,” Governor Henry McMaster said.
