Germany-Based ENGESER USA Plans Summerville, South Carolina, Production Center

ENGESER USA Corp., a world leading cable specialist, plans to establish operations in Summerville, South Carolina. The $1.5 million project is expected to create 26 jobs in Dorchester County.

Located at 115 Fabricators Street, the new facility is the company’s first North American manufacturing operation and will allow it to offer direct delivery domestically and to European customers. The location will utilize modern technologies to produce cost-optimized, high-quality cable harnesses, one of ENGESER USA Corp.’s core areas of expertise. Operations are expected to be online by September 2022.

“From the search for a location to the founding of the company, we were professionally accompanied by Dorchester County and the South Carolina Department of Commerce. As an experienced cable assembly products supplier, we are confident that we can add value to our customers in the United States. We intend to continue growing in Summerville and want to become an attractive employer,” ENGESER USA Corp. Managing Director Dirk Kinzel said.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $75,000 Set-Aside grant to Dorchester County to assist with costs related to this project.

"South Carolina has earned a global reputation as an ideal location for companies to do business, and we are happy to welcome ENGESER USA Corp. to our roster of international firms operating in our state. We look forward to the impact they will make in the Dorchester County community and across all of South Carolina,”added Governor Henry McMaster.

Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Schram­berg, Ger­ma­ny, ENGESER USA Corp. designs and manufactures high-quality products for cable and connection technology ranging from classic cable assembly to comprehensive system solutions. A family-owned company, ENGESER USA serves automotive applications, consumer and capital goods, solar engineering, rail technology and more.

“We are pleased ENGESER USA Corp. selected the Charleston region for its first U.S. operation. They join an established group of German companies who are thriving here, and we look forward to ENGESER’s continued growth and expansion. The company will be a tremendous asset to our growing automotive cluster,” Charleston Regional Development Alliance Board Chairman Mike Fuller noted.
