Global Lending Services Plans $4.2 Million Expansion in Greenville, South Carolina

Global Lending Services, an automotive lending company, will invest more than $4.2 million to expand its current operations in Greenville, South Carolina. The investment is expected to create 669 new jobs.

The company has developed state-of-the-art technology and analytics with the ability to approve more customers at competitive rates and provide automated decisions to customers and dealers in less than 20 seconds. GLS currently employees more than 550 employees in its Greenville offices, along with an additional 200 employees nationwide.

Located at 1200 Brookfield Boulevard in Greenville, S.C., GLS’ expansion will increase its footprint and capacity to accommodate growing sales. This expansion will enable GLS to double its operations in Greenville over the next five years to support customer growth and dealer demand. Expansion is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020.

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

“Greenville has been a great home to GLS. The city has provided a climate for tremendous growth for our organization. The talented workforce, along with the focus on automotive and consumer finance, has aligned well with our vision for GLS. We are excited about the next phase of our growth and look forward to many more years of continued growth and success in Greenville,” said GLS CEO Steve Thibodeau.
