PDM US Expands Rock Hill, South Carolina, Operations

PDM US, a manufacturer of pre-insulated copper pipes, plans to expand operations and establish its world headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The $18.5 million project is expected to create 25 jobs in York County.

Located at 640 Celriver Road the location currently serves as the company’s main production facility. The 19,999-square-foot expansion, scheduled for completion by April 2023, will allow PDM US to cast copper tubing in-house using only American-made parts for production, making it the only fully integrated insulated copper tube manufacturer in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to announce the completion of our most recent investment in the Rock Hill, S.C. plant. With the expansion and cutting-edge machinery for the manufacture of copper tubes, PDM will be the only fully integrated insulated copper tube manufacturer in the U.S.! The new process is elegant, innovative and gentle on the planet. Thanks to South Carolina’s favorable industrial environment, we have been able to become a magnet for people who bring their precious gifts to a place where values, vitality and strengths are welcomed and appreciated. All together we are writing a page in the book of the American industry. The best is yet to come,” said PDM US President and CEO Pasquale De Martino.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded a $50,000 Set-Aside grant to York County to assist with the costs of infrastructure improvements.

“After almost a decade in the York County business community, it’s exciting to see PDM US expand operations and establish their world headquarters. South Carolina continues to attract businesses that are eager to expand, and our state provides a great foundation for that growth. We congratulate PDM US on their success in the state and look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

PDM US is a leading global pipe manufacturer and copper tube supplier. The company specializes in innovating, manufacturing and delivering quality pre-insulated copper pipes for the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) industry.
