Ohio-based industrial manufacturer Monti Inc. recently announced plans to invest $2.7 million in an expansion of its existing operations in Greenwood County.
Located at 104 Airport Industrial Park, the planned 20,000-square-foot facility expansion will include the installation of an automatic powder coating line and other specialized related equipment, according to a news release.
The expansion is expected to create 19 new jobs. Hiring should begin in the fourth quarter of 2018, according to the release. Interested applicants should visit the company’s careers page online for more information at www.monti-inc.com/employment.
“Monti is excited for the opportunity to grow our operations in Greenwood. We believe that the teams we have in both of our South Carolina facilities have proven that they are capable and deserving of much more opportunity. We are proud to have South Carolina as our home for these two facilities and look forward to more investment and growth in the years to come,” Monti COO Jay Binder said in the release.
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Monti Inc. has specialized in manufacturing and fabricating electrical industry components, including copper and aluminum conductors, insulators and steel parts, for more than four decades, according to the release.
In 2005, the company opened its Greenwood facility, making it the third Monti plant in the United States. Monti also operates facilities in Sumter and Riverview, Michigan.
The company’s Greenwood facility initially focused on offering machining and fabrication services. It later added laser cutting services and CNC lathe capabilities.
“We are extremely proud of all our employees at our Greenwood location. Their efforts and hard work are critical to successfully responding to our customers’ needs. Our commitment to growth in our internal capabilities, as well as our continual improvement of the Monti Quality System, puts us in a position to deliver the fastest turnaround times. This investment in a fully-automated powder coating line will provide our customers with one of the most advanced systems in our local area,” Nick LaVigne, manager of Monti’s Greenwood facility, in a statement.
