Zeltwanger LP, a Germany headquartered machine technology company will expand its Charleston County operations, investing $12.5 million in the site.

The company assembles and manufactures machine products and serves a wide portfolio of applications including plant engineering, automotive, e-mobility, medical technology, automation technology, the packaging industry and the aerospace industry.

“This expansion demonstrates our long-term commitment to our customers and our investment in the future of this company,” Zeltwanger LP President Juergen Goehner said in the release. “We are honored to provide further economic growth and new career opportunities for citizens within the community.”

Relocating within the county to 9551 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston, Zeltwanger LP’s new facility will accommodate additional production due to increased demand in the Charleston area.

The expansion is expected to be complete by the first half of 2023.
