The $25 million investment is expected to create 30 new jobs over the next five years.

Honeywell International is planning a $25 million expansion of its maintenance and manufacturing complex in Greer, S.C.

As part of the expansion, the company will install new equipment at the facility, which provides repair and overhaul services for propulsion engines and components. The site also manufactures more than 300 part numbers.

The expansion will generate 30 new jobs over the next five years, according to the South Carolina Department of Commerce.

"The Greer facility is an important part of our overall operations and this expansion will help it remain competitive," said Ray Kime, site manager for Honeywell. "South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business climate and the skilled talent we require."

Honeywell expects to complete the expansion in 2016.

The Greer facility handles more than 400 engines/modules each year, performing more than 40,000 piece-part and systems-component restorations annually. Technical capabilities include machining, special processes, NDT, laser welding, tool making and balancing.

Honeywell first established manufacturing operations in Greer in 1982, and opened the repair and overhaul facility in 1988.

"Their decision to expand their Greer operations is an important affirmation of this region's focus on developing and deepening our aviation and aerospace clusters," said Chris Riley, chairman of the Greenville Area Development Corp. Board of Directors. "As an innovation-driven organization with blue-chip clients and global opportunities in multiple industries, Honeywell is a prized member of the Upstate business community."
