India-Based Responsive Industries Plans Mauldin, South Carolina, Distribution Hub

Responsive Industries, a leading manufacturer of vinyl flooring, will establish a distribution complex in Mauldin, South Carolina. The $10 million project is expected to create 10 jobs in Greenville County.

Located at 360 Old Laurens Road in the Access Point Industrial Park, the new facility will manage all facets of the company’s operations in the United States including logistics, sales, technical services and after-sales service.

“Responsive Industries is proud to join the Greenville County community with our new distribution center. We have committed to holding inventory stateside to avoid interruptions in the ever-changing global supply, and our ultimate goal is to manufacture our floors right here in South Carolina. We’re excited for the future and the opportunities to grow and work with the great people in South Carolina,” said Responsive Industries Chief Operating Officer Doug Van Nest.

Headquartered in India, Responsive Industries is a manufacturer of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products, specializing in luxury vinyl plank, sheet vinyl and vinyl tile. The company also offers an extensive portfolio of wood and stone selections designed for offices, retail space, residential areas and more.

“Responsive Industries’ decision to locate in Greenville County signals yet another vote of confidence by an international company that South Carolina is the ideal place to conduct business. We applaud the company’s investment in the community and look forward to working with them for years to come,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

“It’s always gratifying to see a global company choose to locate U.S. operations in Greenville County, as it proves that our pro-business environment, available talent and optimal location can help it flourish here. Congratulations to Responsive Industries on their decision to place distribution and customer support services here. We look forward to helping them grow and thrive,” Greenville County Council Chair and Greenville Area Development Corporation Board Member Willis Meadows noted.
