Global Metal Powders to Locate Headquarters & Operations Complex in Aynor, South Carolina

Global Metal Powders, a leader in the production of metal powders, plans to establish a 16,000-square-foot headquarters and operations center at Cool Springs Park in Aynor, South Carolina.

The company's $1.5 million investment, which is expected to be operational by 2021, will create 15 new jobs over the next five years in Horry County.

Founded in 2010, Global Metal Powders produces metal powders using proprietary technologies including vacuum hydrogen reduction, crushing, powder processing and sizing. The metal powders produced are used in automotive, electronics, glass, medical equipment, photovoltaics, semiconductor and sputtering targets applications.

“All of us at GMP are excited to call Horry County, South Carolina our new home. We look forward to bringing new manufacturing technologies to the area and adding local talent to our powder metallurgy team as we continue to grow,” said Global Metal Powders President Doug Mailander.

“Whenever a new company decides to invest in South Carolina, it marks the beginning of a partnership that we know will benefit our people for a long time. Global Metal Powders’ investment in Horry County shows its commitment to our state, and we’re grateful for the opportunities it will create for South Carolinians,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

“Today, we celebrate Global Metal Powders’ decision to move its headquarters and manufacturing to Horry County. Horry County provides a great workforce, wonderful community and the drive to diversify and recruit industry. We welcome Global Metal Powders to Horry County and look forward to their success. On behalf of the Horry County Council, staff and residents, welcome to Team Horry,” noted Horry County Council Chairman Johnny Gardner.
