Italy-based Ritrama Plans Manufacturing Plant In Moore, South Carolina
Designed to be the company’s most modern and productive plant worldwide, this new 350,000-square-foot facility will utilize the latest coating technologies and advanced robotics for internal logistics and packaging, as well as a fully automated storage and retrieval system for all its warehousing requirements. The facility will be a logistic platform to service North America, as well as export to Central American and South American markets. It will also serve as the company’s North American headquarters.
“We at Ritrama are excited about expanding our North American manufacturing footprint in Moore. Both Spartanburg County and the State of South Carolina have been very supportive to work with during this process, and we are looking forward to being part of the community and bringing new jobs to our highly-automated, state-of-the-art factory,” said Ritrama Group CEO Ricardo Rink.
Located near the intersection of I-26 and Highway 221 in Moore, rough grading on the site began in mid-December 2015, and it is anticipated that the facility will be fully operational by the fourth quarter of 2017.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits, as well as a $150,000 Set Aside grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the costs of real property improvements related to the project.
“We welcome Ritrama to South Carolina with open arms and celebrate the $85 million investment in Spartanburg County. The 150 new jobs this investment means for Spartanburg is great news for the state and once again shows that Team South Carolina has created a competitive business environment that’s open for business for companies of all kinds,” Governor Nikki Haley said.
