Vetroresina LLC, an international manufacturer of fiber-reinforced polyester laminates, has announced plans to invest $7.5 million in an expansion of its operations in Greenville County.
The plans include the construction of a 50,000-square-foot expansion to its current facility to accommodate custom orders and a growing product line. It is expected to create 17 new jobs, according to a press release.
“Vetroresina is thrilled to be expanding our operations in Greenville. Despite opening our facility during the economic downturn of 2008, we persevered, met our target goals, and are now enjoying steady and growing business,” said Elena Colombarini, Vetroresina general manager and CEO.
Vetroresina, which is located in the S.C. Technology and Aviation Center at 6 Idaho Street, opened in 1968 and manufactures fiberglass sheets with a variety of reinforcements and resins and primarily serves the recreational vehicle and refrigerated truck industries. The company opened its Greenville facility in 2008 to serve the North American market.
The expanded facility is expected to be operational by the first half of 2019, and those interested in joining the Vetroresina team should contact [email protected].
