Nupi Americas, Inc. Plans Manufacturing Facility In Early Branch, South Carolina

Nupi Americas, Inc., a North American subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., is establishing warehousing and distribution operations in Hampton County, South Carolina. The $4.9 million investment is expected to create 37 new jobs over the next five years.

To house the new facility, Nupi Americas is purchasing an existing 50,000-square-foot spec building, which is located at 314 Commerce Parkway in Early Branch. The facility is expected to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2016.

Established in 2001, the company has been manufacturing and marketing the NIRON product line since 1982. NIRON is a complete polypropylene pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems. The company’s Hampton County operations will focus primarily on its NIRON product line.

“Nupi Americas has chosen South Carolina to develop its future products in the U.S. The new facility, located in the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus, will be the hub to manufacture and distribute products to our oil, plumbing and HVAC customers. We would like to thank all of the local and state institutions who helped us to achieve our expansion goals on schedule. We are extremely pleased with the cooperation between all of the economic development institutions and how they are well disposed to welcome industries in their territory, providing support at all the levels,” said Marco Genoni, President/CEO Nupi Americas and CEO of Nupi Industrie Italiane SpA.

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

“It truly is a reason to celebrate when a company decides to invest in one of our rural counties. We have always made it a priority to show the world that all of South Carolina is open for business, and Nupi America’s investment in Hampton County does exactly that. We’re thrilled to welcome Nupi America to the South Carolina family, and look forward to watching its operations in Hampton thrive and grow,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

“We appreciate Nupi Americas’ investment in our region. Their new facility just off I-95 will be a successful one for both manufacturing and distribution, and we look forward to their success and prosperity in the Southern Carolina region of our state,” said SouthernCarolina Regional Development Alliance Chairman Buddy Phillips.
