A subsidiary of German-based abat AG and sister company of Adah International, abatUS invested $10 million to set up operations in Greenville, Louisiana South Carolina.

As an SAP Gold Partner, abatUS supports original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers holistically and flexibly, starting with project planning and conceptualizing all the way to implementation, training and maintenance. abatUS specializes in consulting and development for logistics and automotive; process optimization with SAP solutions; and application management services.

Located at 1 North Main Street in Greenville, abatUS supports regional customers including Daimler, BLG Logistics, Swiss Krono and BMW, while also providing expertise to new relationships seeking expertise in SAP and industrial optimization. “After much deliberation, we chose Greenville over other locations due to its proximity to customers and its commitment to developing talent.

“Congratulations to abatUS for establishing new operations in South Carolina. This $10 million investment and the 35 jobs it brings will make a real difference in Greenville County, and we look forward to watching this company grow and succeed there for a very long time,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“When companies like abatUS choose to locate here, it’s a win-win for everyone involved. Not only will this create jobs and opportunity for South Carolinians, but it will give this company access to one of the most talented workforces in the country,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
