CRP Industries Chooses Conway, South Carolina for Manufacturing Complex

CRP Industries Inc., a leading manufacturer in the automotive parts and industrial products sectors, will invest $2.5 million to establish operations in Conway, South Carolina. The company plans to create approximately 115 jobs over the next five years in Horry County.

Located at 3084 Bashor Road in Conway, CRP Industries Inc. will establish operations in a newly-constructed 50,000-square-foot facility. The facility will initially be used to manufacture advanced electric power steering systems for the automotive aftermarket under the CRP Industries Inc. brand of AAE, with plans to expand into other products over time. Operations are expected to be online in mid-September of this year.

"After completing extensive due diligence on several potential new locations for our expanded operations, we chose Conway and Horry County because of their workforce, their focus on supporting new businesses as demonstrated by strong financial and administrative assistance to our project and the technical partnership offered by Horry-Georgetown Technical College. We are excited to begin this new chapter in the growth of CRP Industries Inc. with the State of South Carolina, Horry County and the city of Conway as our partners,” said CRP Industries Inc. CEO Dan Schildge.

"Whenever a new company decides to invest within our borders, it marks the beginning of a partnership that we know will benefit South Carolinians for a long time. I look forward to watching CRP Industries Inc. thrive in the state and make a positive impact in Horry County and beyond,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

"South Carolina's automotive industry continues to flourish, and today's announcement by CRP Industries Inc. is a testament to that. By establishing operations in Horry County, CRP Industries Inc. is showing its commitment to our state, and we are excited for the opportunities it will create for the community,” noted Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

"Horry County continues to prove that we have a great workforce, wonderful community and the drive to diversify and recruit industry. We are honored CRP Industries Inc. chose our community to expand their company and we look forward to their success. On behalf of the Horry County Council, staff and residents, welcome to Team Horry,” Horry County Council Chairman Johnny Gardner said.
