Meyer Tool, Inc., an innovative high-tech supplier to the gas turbine engine industry, is expanding its operations center in Greenville County, South Carolina. The expansion project is expected to bring $6 million investment and 57 new jobs to the Upstate.
Located at 7640 Pelham Road in Greenville, MTI is expanding its existing facility by 44,000 square-feet to accommodate the company’s continued growth.
Founded in 1951, MTI is a recognized industry leader in turbine technologies, supplying a range of precision components to the aerospace industry and gas turbine engine industry. The company specializes in electrical discharge machining (EDM), laser machining and welding, water jet machining, abrasive grinding, coating and other processes required to provide a single-source solution for airfoils and other hot section turbine components. The company holds AS9100 and NADCAP certifications for all special processes.
“This expansion is necessary to continue growing our existing business, as well as adding new opportunities. The growth reflects our continuing commitment to provide superior service to our customers. Without our strong team and partners none of this would be possible,” said Chris Urban, Meyer Tool, Inc. General Manager Greenville, South Carolina.
“It’s always exciting to see a company like Meyer Tool succeed in our state and make the decision to expand here. This $6 million investment, and the 57 new jobs it means for Greenville County, shows that Team South Carolina’s approach to creating a competitive business environment and building a world-class workforce is paying off for both South Carolinians and our companies,” Governor Nikki Haley said.
“Meyer Tool is a leader within the aerospace and power generation industry and a true ally of Greenville, South Carolina. We are excited to have them as part of our industrial community and applaud their continued growth,” Greenville County Council Chairman Dr. Bob Taylor said.
