Honeywell will invest $10 million and create about 30 skilled high-tech jobs in its Greer aerospace facility over the next five years.

The expansion includes 5,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

The first phase of expansion will begin in the third quarter with an estimated completion date in 2019.

The Greer facility is a major center for the company’s machining, special processes, and maintenance, repair and overhaul services for both commercial and military aircraft.

Honeywell just completed a $25 million expansion that created 30 jobs between 2011-2106.

“The aerospace industry is one of the most competitive industries in the world, and South Carolina in particular hosts nearly 200 aerospace-related companies,” Jason Lewandowski, senior director for the Greer Site, Honeywell Aerospace, stated.

“Our facility expansion means that we not only increase our capabilities, but Honeywell continues to contribute to South Carolina’s burgeoning aerospace economy,” Lewandowski said.

The South Carolina Department of Commerce has also committed additional tax incentives over the next 20 years to support the continued progress of the facility, according to Honeywell officials.

“This investment positions our manufacturing network for future growth to help us maintain leadership and drive innovation,” Lewandowski said. “We will benefit greatly from South Carolina’s wealth of engineering and manufacturing talent to strengthen our technical capabilities and provide production support from Greer.”

The South Carolina Department of Commerce has also committed additional tax incentives over the next 20 years to support the continued progress of the facility, according to Honeywell officials.

Honeywell first established manufacturing operations at its Greer facility in 1982. The site has grown into a dedicated hub for aerospace manufacturing where its engineers and technicians provide commercial, military and government customers with original equipment manufacturer production, maintenance, repair and overhaul support for Honeywell’s industry-leading family of engines.

More than 1,000 employees work in various Honeywell divisions within South Carolina.
