Brose North America Plans Manufacturing Center In Duncan, South Carolina

Brose North America, Inc., a technological leader in the integration of mechanics, electrics and electronics, is establishing a new facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The new manufacturing operation is expected to bring around $6 million in new capital investment and lead to the creation of at least 60 new jobs.

To establish operations, the company is moving into a 77,000-square-foot space located at 1171 Howell Road in Duncan. The company will produce door systems, as well as systems for on-demand control of cooling air supply for its automotive customers. As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

“Announcing our fourth facility in the United States is a proud moment for the company and a testament to the value and quality products Brose provides its customers. We take pride in our products as well as our commitment to streamlining logistics and providing high-quality customer service – this facility supports all of the above,” said President of Brose North America Mike Brosseau.

Brose is currently occupying 10 office spaces in Spartanburg Community College’s Center for Business and Entrepreneurial Development, a soft landing pad facility. The soft landing pad is an innovative new concept, designed to promote and house new economic development projects in the region. A unique business strategy, landing pads allow companies to build a core while they ramp up operations in South Carolina.

“Our automotive industry is truly one of the driving forces behind South Carolina’s economic growth, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Brose to our family. This nearly $6 million investment, and the more than 60 jobs it means for Spartanburg County, will make a huge difference in the Upstate and is a reason to celebrate across the state,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

“We are exceedingly pleased that Brose North America chose to locate a new operation in Spartanburg County and welcome them to our community. As a partner to the international automobile industry, the choice of a Spartanburg location reinforces Spartanburg’s reputation to attract quality international manufacturing. This success was made possible through the collaborative work of our public-private partners: a property developed by Scannell Properties and represented by Colliers International, Spartanburg Community College Tyger River Campus, the Economic Futures Group and Spartanburg County Council,” said Chairman of the Spartanburg County Economic Recruitment Committee David Britt.
