Fujifilm Manufacturing USA Inc., one of the manufacturing locations for Tokyo-based Fujifilm Corporation, will expand its existing operations in Greenwood County. The company’s $3.9 million investment is projected to create 67 new jobs, according to a news release from the S.C. Department of Commerce.
Fujifilm is a manufacturer of industrial and commercial imaging products. The company operates five manufacturing facilities on its 500-acre campus at 211 Puckett Ferry Road near Lake Greenwood.
This expansion to Fujifilm’s 2.5-million-square-foot plant will allow for the assembly of electrical parts for inkjet printer heads for a sister company, Fujifilm Dimatix. Hiring for the new positions is expected to begin in late July or early August 2018, and interested applicants should visit the company's careers page online, according to the news release.
“Fujifilm Manufacturing is celebrating its 30th anniversary in Greenwood this year, and I cannot think of anything better for our associates, the community and the company than to announce this expansion, which demonstrates Fujifilm’s continued commitment to Greenwood County, Fujifilm Manufacturing USA President Todd Croker said in a statement. “We appreciate the support from the state and local governments, as well as the Greenwood Partnership Alliance for facilitating investments in existing industries.”
The Fujifilm announcement is the second in about a month from a Japanese company investing in Greenwood County.
Teijin Holdings USA broke ground June 1 on a $600 million carbon fiber plant. Officials at that ceremony said Teijin’s decision to build in Greenwood County came with an endorsement from Fujifilm, which is located across the road.
