Jatco Inc., a Union City, Calif.-based plastic molder and manufacturer, will establish a new production facility in Greenwood, S.C.
The $2 million investment is expected to generate 39 new jobs, according to the South Carolina Department of Commerce.
Jatco will establish its East Coast production facility in an existing facility in Greenwood, and will be renovating and upfitting the facility in the coming weeks, according to the department. The company expects to begin production at the facility in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Demand for our products is constantly growing, and this new facility will give our company a broader reach as we seek to increase our market share, said Paul Appelblom, CEO and chairman of Jatco. We are pleased to locate our new production facility in Greenwood. South Carolina offers us an excellent business environment and we look forward to starting up our operations there. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials.
The company plans to begin hiring for the new positions in mid-December. Employment information will be posted through the South Carolina One-Stop Workforce Center at a later date.
