Genetec Global Technologies Inc., located in Fountain Inn, announced Thursday its plans to further expand its presence in Greenville County by opening a new operation, Genetec Technology Automation, in Simpsonville.
The expansion represents a $1.2 million investment and is expected to generate 160 new jobs.
“We are pleased to move forward with expansion plans in Greenville County. South Carolina has provided an excellent business environment for our company," said Dan Gehrman, vice president of Genetec Technology Automation. "This expansion will help augment our other businesses – Systems South in Fountain Inn, S.C. and IP Systems in Denver – by expanding our market share with innovative designs, increased capacity and global support. We appreciate the support we’ve received from state and local officials."
Genetec Technology Automation is a manufacturing company that focuses on automotive, healthcare and textile industries. Through the expansion, the company will add sales, engineering and assembly capabilities for providing custom automation equipment to customers. The company also plans to outsource much of their manufacturing requirements to local suppliers for machining and fabrication.
“It’s a great day in South Carolina and we celebrate Genetec’s decision to invest $1.2 million and create 160 well-paying new jobs. Our state’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce continue to not only attract outside investment, but also help existing businesses like Genetec grow,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
The company will begin hiring for the new positions in June. Anyone interested in job opportunities should submit information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
