Solvay, a chemicals company with a facility in Greenville County, opened its new 27,000-square-foot thermoplastic composites (TPC) manufacturing facility Sept. 16.
The more than $39 million investment will add more than 30 positions to the company’s location at 7139 Augusta Road in Piedmont.
“The TPC solutions that will be manufactured in our Greenville facility will help our energy, aerospace and automotive customers achieve better environmental responsibility by making cars and planes lighter, thereby reducing emissions,” said Mike Finelli, president of Solvay’s growth platforms. “Our new capacity and differentiated technologies will allow us to expand with our customers as TPCs gain momentum in a growing number of applications and play an important role in the energy transition.”
The company has also made strategic investments to build infrastructure in the TPC market by adding capacity for TPC tape in Anaheim, California and adding two new research and innovation centers in Brussels, Belgium and Alpharetta, Georgia.
