Zeus Industrial Products Expands Plant in Aiken, South Carolina
Founded in 1966, Zeus develops and manufacturers polymer tubing for a variety of industries, including the medical, fluid handling and electrical markets.
The company’s $15.7 million investment in Aiken County complements a $15.9 million expansion in Orangeburg County and $76 million expansion in Calhoun County, both of which were announced over the last several weeks. With this project, Zeus is expected to create an additional 51 new jobs in Aiken.
Located at 9150 Levels Church Road West in Aiken, Zeus intends to convert its warehousing operations and floor space to manufacturing space in order to increase production of existing products by installing additional manufacturing lines. The plant will also be increasing its product portfolio as several new products and new manufacturing processes are introduced over the next few years.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
“We are truly excited about expanding our manufacturing presence in Aiken. We have been pleased with the community support that we have received since commencing our Aiken operations in 1999. We remain committed to being a good citizen of the county, meeting and exceeding the needs of our customers, and most importantly, providing quality careers for all of our employees in an atmosphere that will allow them to flourish,” said Zeus Industrial Products, Inc. President & CEO John Winarchick.
“Zeus continues to strengthen its commitment to Team South Carolina, and we couldn’t be more proud. With its third announcement this month, this remarkable company is making a statement about South Carolina and its workforce, letting the world know that our state truly is ‘Just right’ for business,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
“We are very grateful for this expansion announcement by Zeus. This is a great win for Aiken County, and we look forward to more growth by Zeus in our region,” said Economic Development Partnership Chairman Gary Stooksbury.
