AGY Holding Corp. To Expand Aiken, South Carolina Operations Center

AGY Holding Corp., a leading global producer of glass fiber yarns and high-strength glass fiber reinforcement materials, is expanding its existing operations at 2556 Wagener Road in Aiken, South Carolina. The planned investment is expected to create as many as 80 new jobs during the next five years.

The investment in AGY’s Aiken County facility, which serves as the company’s global headquarters, will principally include the expansion and upgrading of machinery and equipment. This will allow AGY to meet the growing demand and exceed global quality standards for specialty glass fibers. With the expansion expected to be executed throughout the next five years, hiring for the new positions will take place as the incremental capacity is placed into service.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.

“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate AGY Holding Corp.’s decision to expand and create 80 new jobs in South Carolina. Each time we see one of our companies succeed and expand here, it proves that Team South Carolina’s hard work is paying off, and we look forward to seeing this fantastic partnership continue to pay off for the people of our state for many years to come,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
