The Crown Group, a provider of coating services to the automotive, heavy truck and agriculture industries, has opened a new plant in Greenville. The $5.4 million investment is expected to generate 42 new jobs over the next five years.
The Warren, Mich.-based manufacturer took over an existing building at the SC Technology and Aviation Center (SCTAC) campus earlier this year. The space comprises 98,200 square feet on nearly 10 acres of land.
The new plant will be the Crown Group’s seventh in the U.S. and the first in South Carolina. The company said in a statement that the facility will allow the company to work more closely with existing clients and to expand its footprint into the Southeast. The Greenville plant will be located at 101 Milledge Road, and begin operations in June.
The move allows the company to build on existing relationships with the Upstate’s automotive industry.
“We welcome The Crown Group to the Palmetto State’s business community,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “The Crown Group joins a two-decade tradition of automotive success in South Carolina, and the jobs they bring with them will have an impact throughout the entire state.”
