Ultrafab, Inc., an original equipment manufacturer of weather seals, is expanding its existing operations in Greenville County, South Carolina. The expansion project is expected to bring more than $2 million in capital investment and lead to the creation of 34 new jobs.
Located at 49 Freedom Court in Greer, Ultrafab will be leasing an additional 20,000 square-feet to accommodate its growth, effectively doubling its footprint in South Carolina. The new facility is expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2016.
Founded in 1970, Ultrafab designs, manufactures and sells window and door weather-stripping and weather seal products for OEM applications. Featuring three manufacturing and four additional warehouse locations across the United States, the company supplies engineered solutions for the fenestration, transportation, industrial, office equipment and healthcare industries.
“Since 2009, Ultrafab has been steadily growing our business in South Carolina and we are excited to double our footprint in the state to better service our window and door customers’ growth in the southeastern United States,” Ultrafab, Inc. CFO Tom Hare said.
“The fact that Ultrafab has been able to succeed here to the point that it’s able to double its footprint here is a huge win for our state because it shows that Team South Carolina’s approach to creating a competitive business environment is working for our companies. We’re excited to congratulate Ultrafab on this latest expansion and look forward to watching it continue to grow for many years to come,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
