Chomarat To Expand Anderson, S.C., Facility, Add 20 Jobs

Anderson, S.C.-based Chomarat North America — the regional division of France-based textiles and composites manufacturer Chomarat Group — is investing $10 million to expand its Anderson operations and add 20 jobs. The investment includes the addition of manufacturing space and new equipment.
Chomarat reports the expansion will entail both physical and technical changes into advanced composite reinforcements, and that it will enable the company to expand its business into new markets including industrial, automotive and aerospace, among other markets.
“It is an exciting time for Chomarat as we grow our legacy business and expand operations to support new markets,” said Brian Laufenberg, president, Chomarat North America. “The advanced composites business is quite healthy in this country, and particularly strong in South Carolina, where there is a long history of textile and reinforcements manufacturing. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to operate and grow our business in Anderson County.”
