Health Supply US Plans Greenville, South Carolina, Production-Operations Complex
Located at 1 Quality Way, the new facility will operate as Glove One with a distinctive focus on the manufacturing of American-made nitrile gloves. The location will produce an expected 4.3 billion nitrile gloves per year and greatly increase the domestic supply for this critical medical supply item, helping to protect America’s public health and national security. Construction is expected to be complete by January 2024.
“We embarked on this critical project on behalf of our nation, and in doing so, knew that manufacturing site selection was of paramount importance to operational longevity. Greenville and the entire state of South Carolina displayed tremendous enthusiasm for life sciences and support for this medical device operation. We’d like to thank all those involved from the Lowcountry to the Midlands to the Charlotte-region, and of course, those in the Upstate that enabled this project to find its Greenville home for many decades to come,” Health Supply U.S. Executive Vice President Aaron Petrosky said.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project as an incentive. The council also awarded a $300,000 Set-Aside grant to Greenville County to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
“South Carolina’s life sciences sector continues to grow at a rapid pace, amplified by today’s announcement that Health Supply US is investing $150 million and creating 600 new jobs in the Greenville County community. Not just a win for South Carolina, Health Supply US’ new Glove One operation is a win for the medical supply chain across all of the U.S. We look forward to a strong partnership with Health Supply US for many years to come,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
A dedicated healthcare industry and government private sector partner, Health Supply US works to secure the United States’ domestic pipeline of medical supplies by identifying, sourcing and delivering personal protective equipment for health care systems and federal, state and local governments. The company’s FDA-compliant products include Class I medical devices and products such as medical isolation gowns and nitrile gloves.
“Health Supply US produces and delivers essential safety and medical supplies to frontline workers, our military and those who need them most. Greenville County is excited to welcome the organization as they establish this significant manufacturing facility here, and we wish them long-lasting success,” said Greenville County Council Chair and Greenville Area Development Corporation Board Member Willis Meadows.
