Element Materials Technology plans to open a new facility in Anderson County. The materials and product qualification testing company is investing $3.4 million in the facility which expects to create 31 new jobs.
The 30,000-square-foot facility will be located at 1370 Shiloh Church Road in Piedmont. To assist Anderson County with building improvement costs, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $200,000 Set Aside grant.
“This significant investment is a real win-win for Element and for the local community,” Element president and CEO Charles Noall said in the release. “The facility will strengthen our footprint, capacity, and capabilities and enable us to deliver cost savings for our clients, while also boosting the local economy through the creation of 31 jobs over the next five years.”
Providing services to more than 40,000 customers in global aerospace, transportation, fire, oil and gas, and infrastructure sectors, Element has 188 laboratory operations in 32 countries, according to the release.
“South Carolina’s workforce continues to exhibit unmatched excellence, and companies like Element are taking notice,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in the release. “They know that the people of this state will get the job done, helping them operate a successful, thriving facility in Anderson County for years to come.”
