Schneider Electric Expands Operations in Seneca, South Carolina
12 April 2017
Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, is expanding its manufacturing center at 1990 Sandifer Boulevard in Seneca, South Carolina.
Schneider Electric’s 334,000-square-foot Oconee County plant manufactures motor control centers (MCCs) and enclosed drives and starters. These products are used in applications ranging from technology for production lines and oil rigs to equipment in wastewater treatment plants.
The company, which will be creating 56 new jobs at its Seneca facility, will be launching a new product line by the third quarter of 2017.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
“We have a long manufacturing history in South Carolina, and we are happy to maintain our commitment to the communities where we live and work. The team in Seneca plays a critical role in serving our customers and ensuring their processes are safe and efficient, while driving innovation and digitization into their operation,” said Schneider Electric CEO Annette Clayton.
“South Carolina’s manufacturing industry is one of the fastest growing in the world, and we have a strong workforce and competitive business environment to thank for that. We welcome this new investment by Schneider Electric and look forward to seeing the impact these 56 new jobs will have on Oconee County, “ Governor Henry McMaster said.
