One of the world’s top automotive suppliers, located at 1751 East Main Street in Duncan, is investing more than $35 million in the project, expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2016.
The company manufactures interiors for premium automobiles and plastic components at its Duncan site. It has expanded three times since its opening in 1998, including a new production wing that added 350 new jobs in 2011. The workforce is about 1,000 people, the company announced.
Job applications are being accepted here.
“Our plant in Duncan plays an important strategic role for our global production network and for our customers right here in the Americas,” Barbara Bergmeier of the Draxlmaier Group, said.
“Our company has been in the Upstate of South Carolina for almost 20 years, and we plan to strengthen our ties even further in the near future. The expansion shows that we are committed to a steady growth in this region. The well-trained and highly-skilled workforce in South Carolina will help us to develop and manufacture high-quality products for our customers in the Americas and around the world,” Bergmeier said.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $500,000 Set Aside grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the costs of real property improvements related to the project.
