Ortec Expands Pendleton, South Carolina, Manufacturing Center

Ortec, a leading biomaterial and polymer technology company, will invest $20 million to expand its manufacturing complex by 50,000 square feet and increase its production capacity in Pendleton, South Carolina.

This is Ortec’s latest expansion, following its previous $20 million investment and creation of 60 jobs in December 2016.

“Ortec is pleased to continue enlarging its corporate footprint here in South Carolina with this expansion of our Pendleton facility. We appreciate the level of cooperation between the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Anderson County Economic Development and the town of Pendleton that will ensure the project’s success. This is not only an investment for our growth today, but for many years to come,” said Ortec President Christopher Brotherton.

“South Carolina’s manufacturing industry is one of the fastest growing in the world, and we have a strong workforce and competitive business environment to thank for that. We welcome this new investment by Ortec and look forward to seeing the impact these new jobs will have on Anderson County,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

"Anderson County is pleased to celebrate Ortec’s expansion announcement, which is only possible through our partnership with the town of Pendleton and the Sandy Springs Water Company. This project is just the first of many economic development projects coming to the Pendleton and Sandy Springs communities,” Anderson County Councilman Brett Sanders, District 4 explained.

“This joint public-private partnership reinforces our belief that Pendleton is positioned for growth with direction toward the future and a belief that cooperation will produce positive results. We would like to thank Ortec, Anderson County and all the officials who helped us provide the best possible proposal for the company, while allowing us to make the best decisions for the town. During this time of growth in our town, it is more important than ever that we remain responsible stewards of our community,” said Pendleton Mayor Frank Crenshaw.
