Innegrity to expand manufacturing facilities in Greenville

Aug '08
The Greenville Area Development Corporation and Innegrity LLC -a developer and manufacturer of high performance fibers that provide weight reduction and ballistic protection solutions with scores of potential applications – announced that the company will significantly expand its production facilities in Greenville County, South Carolina, adding a projected 150 new jobs over the next three to five years. The expansion includes relocation from the company's current Concourse Way facility to an upfitted 120,000 square feet of space in Mauldin, part of an anticipated $15 million investment by the company.

Formed in May, 2004 in Greenville, Innegrity's early years were spent on research and development, filing patents, and forging key relationships with fabric formation and end-user producers. In 2006, the company began construction of a pilot production line which began operations in 2007 and joined with Reimotec in Germany to form Innegrity Europe GmbH, which began manufacturing fiber in April, 2008. Innegrity is currently developing high performance applications in the ballistics, marine, rope, automotive and sporting goods markets.

This move will “markedly expand our technology and manufacturing facilities in Greenville County,” said Brian G. Morin, Ph.D., CEO of Innegrity. “The expansion will help us meet growing customer demand and build a world class high performance materials company. Greenville County has a combination of family values and dedicated, talented workforce that is difficult to find, and we're proud to call this community home.”

While exploring opportunities for product application in a range of global markets, Morin noted that the company had partnered with several South Carolina textile companies to develop commercial fabrics using its fibers.

“South Carolina has been home to Innegrity since we founded the company, and we are pleased to continue to build our company here. We believe that an unwavering focus on innovation and integrity, a commitment to solving global problems with high performance materials, and combining quality people with state-of-the-art facilities are the cornerstones to achieving our goals,” said Morin. “We're pleased to continue to expand Innegrity's presence here in Greenville County, and thank Greenville County, the Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC), the city of Mauldin, and the South Carolina Department of Commerce for their support in helping plan and execute this initiative.”

Innegrity currently produces two unique fibers with a wide variety of potential applications. Innegra S high performance fiber is the lightest fiber available, delivering superior toughness in a composite while at the same time reducing weight. In both glass and carbon composites, Innegra S dramatically increases composite toughness and impact resistance. Innegra S delivers the benefits of high performance fibers such as aramids and carbon at a fraction of the cost. Hybrid Innegra S/aramid panels have proven to have the same ballistic performance as all-aramid panels at dramatically lower cost.
