Mecart, a cleanroom specialist and a manufacturer of custom-designed acoustical modular buildings, has announced plans to establish operations in Greenville County, South Carolina, US.
The $2 million investment will create 50 new jobs.
Founded in Canada in 1974, Mecart now designs, engineers, manufactures and installs modular buildings for industrial applications - including cleanrooms, control rooms and offices for harsh environments, operator booths, sound studios, acoustical components and industrial silencers.
"We are very excited to call Greenville, S.C. home now. Our new factory will allow us to meet rapidly growing customer demand with our high-quality modular system for cleanrooms and industrial enclosures," said VP of US Operations, Charles Lipeles. "This facility, staffed with great people from South Carolina, is a key element to help us achieve our strategic vision."
Mecart has experienced substantial growth in the US over the past decade and has an aggressive plan for future growth, with the new Greenville County operation bringing the company closer to the local market.
The new facility is expected to be operational by October 2021 and will span 31,250 sqft.
"Greenville County is pleased to welcome Mecart as the company establishes manufacturing operations in South Carolina," said Greenville County Council Chairman and Greenville Area Development Corporation Board Member Willis Meadows. "As a respected global manufacturer of modular buildings including cleanrooms and acoustic enclosures, we welcome their team, talents and capabilities to Greenville County."
