Horsham, Pa.-based composite materials producer Material Sciences Corp. (MSC) will invest $2.7 million to build a second facility in Greenville, S.C., to complement its existing Greenville facility, which is located at the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center. The new facility will expand MSC’s research and development efforts, as well as increase manufacturing and commercialization of advanced composites.
The 32,000-square-foot expansion is expected to create 23 jobs over the next five years, and initial hiring will begin in the fall of 2018.
“Our mission is to continuously develop, test, improve and manufacture advanced materials that can be transferred into applications of high value,” said Tom Cassin, president and CEO, MSC. “We have been very pleased with our operations in Greenville County and South Carolina and look forward to continuing to grow and contribute to the success of the Palmetto State.”
