NUPI Americas, Inc., a plastic fabrication company and subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., plans to expand operations at its plant in Early Branch, South Carolina. The $4.3 million investment will create 28 new jobs in Hampton County.

Located at 314 Commerce Parkway in Early Branch, NUPI Americas, Inc.'s expansion will increase the company's capacity to meet growing demand. The expansion is expected to be completed by 2023.

"Five years ago, we began our 'business adventure' in South Carolina, intending to stay and grow within the state. We are now ready to again take another step forward and expand our business to target our goal of exponential market growth in the U.S. A special thanks goes to the state of South Carolina, Hampton County and the SouthernCarolina Alliance for their continued support and confidence in our growing business. We must also thank our cherished employees at our Early Branch facility who, during this pandemic and the tremendous disruptions it has caused, have performed admirably and provided the leadership and hard work that have made our continued growth possible,” Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A. CEO and NUPI Americas, Inc. President and CEO Marco Genoni said.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. "South Carolina's manufacturing industry continues to grow, and today we celebrate yet another victory for that sector with the announcement that NUPI Americas, Inc. is expanding its Hampton County operations. I offer my congratulations to the company and the local community on this continued partnership,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.

These product lines offer a complete pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems; gasoline and diesel in service stations; and water and natural gas underground.

"SouthernCarolina Alliance congratulates NUPI Americas, Inc. on their success in Hampton County, and we thank them for their investment in our people. This marks the company's second expansion since first locating at the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus in 2015.
