Honeywell investing $25 million, creating 30 jobs at Greer facility

Published on Monday, October 17, 2011

Honeywell announced it is investing $25 million in its Greer facility that will create 30 jobs over the next five years.

Officials say the company will install more efficient equipment at the plant, which repairs and overhauls propulsion engines for aerospace customers. Expansion is expected to be finished in 2016, say officials.

Honeywell makes aircraft equipment, specialty chemicals and other products. Its safety products division makes a wide range of protective and safety gloves for fire service, utility and general industrial workers.

Honeywell will install new equipment and improve efficiencies at the Greer plant, which provides repair and overhaul of propulsion engines for both commercial and military customers. 

"It's a great day in South Carolina when another world-class company like Honeywell International decides to increase its footprint here and create 30 new well-paying jobs. Announcements like this show we're doing the right things to promote economic development," said Gov. Nikki Haley, in a release.

Honeywell’s Greer Engine Services Center of Excellence provides a broad range Repair & Overhaul (R&O) services and capabilities for propulsion engines and component repair for commercial and military customers. Greer is also the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) source for more than 300 part numbers. 

The R&O facility handles more than 400 engines/modules each year, performing more than 40,000 piece part and systems component restorations annually. Technical capabilities include machining, special processes, NDT, laser welding, tool making, and balancing.

 Honeywell first established manufacturing operations in Greer in 1982, and opened the repair and overhaul facility in 1988, according to the release.
