Piedmont Energy Systems, Inc., a supplier of custom-built bulk hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon storage and distribution systems, expanded its manufacturing operations into a new location in York County, South Carolina. The company’s $4.2 million investment is expected to create 29 new jobs.
PES recently relocated to a new, 50,000-square-foot facility in York County that is more than four times larger than its existing industrial facility. The company purchased 47 acres of road along Campbell Road earlier this year.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 Set Aside grant for real property improvements related to the project.
“PES is delighted to announce our move to South Carolina. In today’s challenging economic climate, small and mid-sized businesses need local and state support to remain competitive. We look forward to partnering with South Carolina and York County as we continue to grow our business and expand into new markets,” said President of Piedmont Energy Systems Patrick Stewart, P.E.
“South Carolina continues to provide the business-friendly climate where companies of all sizes can grow and prosper. We celebrate Piedmont Energy Systems’ decision to invest $4.2 million and create 29 new jobs in York County,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
