An electrical connector manufacturer has relocated its United States headquarters to Laurens County.
Rema USA LLC is moving into a 38,000-square-foot facility at 385 South Woods Drive in Fountain Inn, which is 10 miles from its current location. The company said it will invest $2 million into the facility and employ around 30.
“This investment reinforces Rema’s presence in the United States and provides the necessary means to support our growth expectations,” said Tim Rose, general manager of Rema USA LLC, in a news release. “This move strengthens our ability to meet the customer needs by increasing engineering, manufacturing and sales.”
According to its website, Rema Group, the parent company of Rema USA LLC, is headquartered in Rheinbach, Germany and has offices in Shanghai, China and an additional production facility in Meiningen, Thuringia, Germany. The company employs around 250 across all its offices and facilities.
Its move to a new location is to allow for production expansion “and turn-key engineering and product development capabilities, with particular emphasis in the off-highway materials handling and on-highway electric vehicle charging markets.”
“We are delighted that Rema USA has decided to expand their business into Laurens County,” said Jonathan Coleman, executive director of the Laurens County Development Corp., in the release.
