Austria-Based STIWA US Relocates-Plans Rock Hill, South Carolina, North American Headquarters

STIWA US, Inc., a company of the Austria-based STIWA Group, will expand and relocate to a new North American headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The $30 million project is expected to create 48 jobs in York County.

The investment and relocation will allow the company to readily engage with U.S.-based companies on their specific needs, including new mobility and electrical equipment markets. The relocation is scheduled to be complete by September 2024.

“STIWA US, Inc. has been in the greater Charlotte area since 2016. We are excited that with our future new North American headquarters in Rock Hill we will be able to lift our abilities and services to a new level. The site and the city of Rock Hill also offer us enough opportunities to continue on our planned path to grow and to be able to supply our North American customers with excellent products in automation and parts manufacturing,” said STIWA US, Inc. CEO Andreas Prokesch.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $250,000 Set-Aside grant to York County to assist with site preparation and building construction.

“More and more, international companies are discovering that South Carolina provides the pro-business climate where they can find ongoing success. Congratulations to STIWA US, Inc. for their continued growth in South Carolina, and our state proudly welcomes the international manufacturer’s new North American headquarters to York County,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

Headquartered in Austria, STIWA US, Inc. is an advanced automation company, specializing in high performance automation with a focus on individual customer and product requirements. The company’s expertise in serving the automotive, fittings and medical markets contributed to its growth over the last 50 years.
