Saati Americas Corp. — a producer of textile and chemical products for applications including
screen printing, medical filtration, acoustics, composites and ballistic protection, and a wholly
owned subsidiary of Italy-based Saati Group S.p.A. — plans to establish its U.S. Composites and
Protection division operations and certain distribution operations in Fountain Inn, S.C., with the
expectation of adding more than 80 employees within the next few years. The company is renovating
and modifying a 260,000-square-foot facility previously owned by Kemet Electronics, and will
install new production and R&D equipment.
“This expansion is a critical component of Saati’s global corporate strategy and symbolizes
our commitment to bring Saati’s world-class engineered materials and technical support to
structural composite and protective armor product manufacturers in the Americas,” said Alberto
Novarese, president, Saati Group.
