Materials Science LLC, an engineering services and manufacturing company, plans to expand operations in Greenville County for the third time since 2013. The $4.2 million investment is expected to create 34 new jobs, according to a news release from the Greenville Area Development Corporation.
MSC provides research, design, analysis, testing, prototyping and production manufacturing of composite materials and components, according to the news release. The company has developed specialty algorithms that simulate and predict composite performance.
MSC’s technologies allow the organization to develop custom composite material solutions for clients in the commercial, energy and defense sectors, the release said.
“Operating in the Upstate over the last six years, it has been tremendous to watch the growth and transformation of the region,” Vice President of Manufacturing Tony Caiazzo Jr. said in the release. “In that same time period, the Upstate has helped Materials Sciences LLC as a small business expand our facilities, composite manufacturing capabilities and employee base at an extraordinary rate. We’re excited for the bright future of our company as part of a community that continues to foster innovation and economic development.”
With its existing location at 102 Augusta Arbor Way in Greenville, MSC is expanding into a second manufacturing facility at 101 Pelham Davis Circle, also in Greenville. The expansion and investment will enable continued growth of the company’s production manufacturing work, the release said. Specifically, the expansion into the Pelham Davis Circle location will provide MSC the space necessary to bring in advanced manufacturing equipment to increase both product size and throughput.
The project is expected to be completed by August 2020.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 Set-Aside grant to Greenville County to assist with the costs of building improvements.o
