PIDC Brings Manufacturing Plant To Spartanburg, South Carolina
With operations in five countries, PIDC is a chemical company focused on innovative research and development of advanced materials, including specialty alumina materials, rare earth powders, aqueous solutions and a variety of proprietary, formulated powders. Located at 5396 N. Blackstock Road in Spartanburg, the company will be moving into two buildings totaling approximately 110,000 square feet.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
“We couldn’t be happier that we have decided to expand our company to Spartanburg County in South Carolina. From our first visit there last July, the community has opened their arms to welcome us. We are excited to bring jobs and manufacturing to South Carolina, PIDC CEO Wei Wu said.
“We’re proud to welcome PIDC to the South Carolina business community and look forward to seeing all that we know they will achieve in the Upstate. With a workforce at its disposal that is second to none and one of the most competitive business environments in the world, we know that PIDC will have the tools necessary for success,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
“PIDC’s announcement represents another indicator that this is an exciting time for industry in Spartanburg County. PIDC’s plan to repurpose an existing manufacturing facility and expand the workforce opportunities underscore that Spartanburg is a great place for businesses to build their future,” David Britt, Spartanburg County Economic Development Committee Chairman and Economic Futures Group Board Member noted.
