The Royce Group of companies are pleased to announce its largest expansion in the companies' recent past into the South East by acquiring a new manufacturing and warehousing site in Gaffney, South Carolina. Royce is an 83 years old company, involved in the manufacturing and supply of Industrial chemicals, Colorants and Plastics to the automotive, textile, plastics, aerospace, electronics, paper and construction industries. 
 
The Company is a well-recognized and respected brand in the markets they serve. Royce was founded in 1929 with one manufacturing plant in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Since then Royce has expanded in several industries with five manufacturing sites in US. Royce also has several manufacturing partnerships and warehouse locations in China, India and Europe. 
 
The Gaffney site is a 48,000 sq. ft. building located on a 14 acre parcel of land. Royce plans on servicing its customers in the Textile, Paper, Construction, and Plastics markets from this new location. The Royce team spent more than two years in evaluating different locations in the South before settling on the location in Gaffney, South Carolina.
 
A.J. Royce, IV commented, "Royce has experienced significant growth over the past several years and is projecting further growth in new products and applications. This facility will play a key role in supporting our growth in the future. "
 
Harry Anand, President of Royce International said, "Gaffney is a perfect fit for Royce. Geographically it makes a lot of sense with our current and future customer base. We are recognized for industry leading technical experts in the various industries we serve. We plan to bring this technology to our new Gaffney site and use this as the foundation for our next stage of growth. During our search for a new facility, one of the criteria was to find a business friendly environment with easy access to a skilled labor pool. We are confident that we have made the right choice by purchasing this facility in Gaffney, South Carolina. "
 
Royce plans to upgrade and improve the current facility to suit its operations. We expect that the new facility will be fully operational by the end of this year and will add up to 25 additional employees as our business continues to expand in the South East. 
 
The new facility firmly roots Royce in the Southeast where Royce has been servicing its customers for much of it's 83 years and provides a solid platform for further growth in the area. We look forward to working with the local officials and contributing to the well being of the local community.
