US Building Innovations Inc. (USBI), a company that specializes in the production of advanced coatings, is investing $1 million for a new facility to expand its Upstate operations.
The expansion is expected to create 31 new jobs in Seneca.
Founded in Pickens in 2011, USBI began as a wholesale provider of hydrophobic surface coatings. In an effort to meet the growing demands of its customer base, the company expanded its operations to include product development and manufacturing.
Specializing in advanced coatings, USBI serves industries ranging from marine, auto and aviation to electronics, architectural and residential applications.
“We are grateful for the environment to grow, and for the support the state of South Carolina and Oconee County provide for business,” said USBI President Erin Roussey in a release. “We look forward to being part of the continuing economic success of the Upstate. ”
The company’s new 17,000-square-foot facility, located at 391 Newry Road in Seneca, will house a research and development lab, warehouse and distribution space and manufacturing operations.
The facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2016, with hiring for the new positions anticipated to begin in the fourth quarter of 2015.
