Swiss-Based Matica Group Plans Greer, South Carolina, Manufacturing Operations

Matica Group, an identity and payment solutions provider, plans to establish its first North American operation in Greer, South Carolina. The $2 million project is expected to create 40 jobs.

The new 38,000-square-foot facility, located at 2750 S. Highway 14, will manufacture central identification issuance systems. Production is scheduled for July 2024.

“We have had our sights on opening a factory in the U.S. for some time, since it is the world’s largest market for our specialized field of identification and payment solutions. South Carolina consistently ranks as one of the most business-friendly states in the U.S. and this, combined with our existing expert technical staff already being located here, meant that Greer made perfect sense as a location for our new facility. The local associations and authorities have been extremely supportive, and we feel very welcome and look forward to a successful future,” said Matica Group Founder and CEO Sandro Camilleri.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to the project.

“As Matica Group adds to its presence in the Upstate with this new manufacturing operation, we look forward to supporting the company in establishing a legacy in South Carolina. These investments contribute to an evolving economy that is one of the most competitive business climates in the United States,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

Matica designs, manufactures, and markets payment and identity systems. The company has eleven facilities worldwide, including a technology support office in Greenville County.

“Spartanburg County is a great place to do business, and that was part of why Matica Group decided to bring its manufacturing operations to Greer. We’re excited to welcome them to our county and our incredibly strong manufacturing community,” added Spartanburg County Council Vice Chairman and Economic Development Committee Chairman David Britt.
