All of the plant expansions and equipment upgrades are expected to be complete by mid-2017.

This massive expansion is a testament to a close connection between South Carolina and Germany manufacturers, commented Bobby Hitt, S.C. secretary of commerce.

“Since 2011, German affiliates have announced $3.5 billion in new investment and more than 7,000 new jobs in the Palmetto State,” he remarked.

You can now browse all new job openings in the Rock Hill area here.
