Isringhausen Plans Manufacturing Center in Ladson, South Carolina

Isringhausen, a global leader in the development of seating systems for commercial vehicles, is launching new operations in Ladson, South Carolina. The facility is projected to bring more than 130 new jobs to the Charleston County area in the coming years.

Located in the Palmetto Commerce Park Industrial Complex, the company will be leasing a new facility that will manufacture seats and seat assemblies for the Mercedes-Benz Vans Sprinter model.

“We are very excited to expand our operations into the Charleston area. With the combination of skilled workers and the readySC™ partnership, we are confident that both the company and state will benefit from this new venture. Isringhausen is proud to be part of the rich economic growth made possible by the many great companies who now call South Carolina home,” said Isringhausen Director of HR, North America Tony Gentry.

“The automotive industry continues to be a tremendous job creator for our state’s economy, and Isringhausen’s announcement is another sign of that. South Carolina continues to show the world that it is the best place to do business,” Governor Henry McMaster noted.

“Isringhausen’s decision to expand their global footprint in Palmetto Commerce Park is a testament to the booming manufacturing industry we’ve worked hard to advance in Charleston County. We welcome Isringhausen and look forward to supporting the company in its endeavors for years to come,” Charleston County Council Chairman Victor Rawl said.

“The CRDA team has been talking with Isringhausen GmbH for over two years about the competitive advantages the Charleston region offers. Our highly-skilled workforce, business-friendly climate and globally-connected infrastructure influenced the company’s decision to locate here to better serve its customer, Mercedes-Benz Vans. Isringhausen GmbH will be a tremendous asset to our growing automotive cluster,” Charleston Regional Development Alliance Chairman Will Helmly said.
