Finalcontrol Opens North Charleston, South Carolina, Operations Center

Finalcontrol, Inc., a quality assurance provider for manufacturing companies, is locating new operations at 7239 Cross Park Drive in North Charleston, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 34 new jobs over the next year in Charleston County.

To properly navigate the economic development process in South Carolina, Finalcontrol participated in the state’s Landing Pad program, which aims to assist established companies looking to enter the U.S. or South Carolina markets for the first time.

A collaborative effort between the S.C. Department of Commerce and the state’s regional economic development alliances, the program assists companies with a variety of issues and services, including regulation, taxation and translation, as well as finding suitable office space.

“After successfully operating in Turkey and Germany for the past 10 years, Finalcontrol is entering the U.S. market by opening our first operation in North Charleston, South Carolina. The Charleston region is a strategic location for us with the presence of many international companies (including existing European customers), a growing automotive sector (one of our key industries), and access to a skilled talent pool and pipeline,” said Finalcontrol, Inc. Owner Gazi Yildirim.

“We want to settle down in Charleston, giving our customers the same high-quality standards and flexibility we provide our European customers. We know we’ll be successful here, and plan to increase our activities and service portfolio over the next few years,” Finalcontrol, Inc. Business Development Director Barbara Walter added.

“Businesses from around the world are looking to call South Carolina home, and the fact that Finalcontrol chose Charleston County for their new operations shows that our reputation as a state with a competitive business environment and a strong workforce is continuing to pay off for our people,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“Finalcontrol’s decision to open its first American operation in Charleston County is a testament to the welcoming environment provided to businesses from all corners of the globe. We stand ready to assist and congratulate them on this historic company achievement,” said Charleston County Council Chairman Victor Rawl.
