The South Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Futures Group of Spartanburg County today announced that Polysols Inc., a subsidiary of Polywert GmbH, will locate its new manufacturing facility in Spartanburg County. The $1 million investment is expected to generate 10 new jobs in the next three years.

“We are pleased to locate our first U.S. facility in the Upstate of South Carolina. Spartanburg County is an excellent fit for our company, providing us with an excellent business environment, an excellent labor force and great market access. We appreciate all the support we've received from state and local officials,” said Christoph Bock, treasurer and member of the board of directors for Polysols Inc.

Polysols' facility will use manufacturing wastes and materials created from the production of polyester fibers to make new products. The first product made will be footing material used in the equine industry.

“By choosing to locate in South Carolina, Polysols and its parent company add yet another link between our state and Germany, one of our top trading partners. The company's decision to locate here is also a testament that our business-friendly climate and strong market access are working to attract new investment and job opportunities while helping our state grow its multinational reach. Thanks to the team effort of state and local officials, and the work of Commerce's Europe office, Spartanburg County will benefit from this investment now and in the future,” said Joe Taylor, Secretary of Commerce.

“We are extremely pleased that Polysols Inc. is locating a new facility here,” comments Carter Smith, Executive Vice President of Spartanburg County's Economic Futures Group. “Polysols decision to locate their facility in Spartanburg County adds to our growing list of “green” companies, as their process reduces wastes that could end up in a landfill. Their decision also demonstrates our community's ability to attract quality companies providing excellent job opportunities for the citizens of Spartanburg.”

The company plans to begin hiring for the positions at the end of September.
