Materials Sciences Invests $4.2M to Open New Plant

Composite materials and components developer and manufacturer Materials Sciences LLC (MSC) is committing $4.2 million to open a second facility in Greenville, SC that will expand the company’s manufacturing capabilities, the South Carolina Department of Commerce announced in a recent release. 

The new plant will allow MSC to install advanced manufacturing equipment that will boost the firm’s throughput and the size of products it can produce. 

“Operating in the Upstate over the last six years, it has been tremendous to watch the growth and transformation of the region. In that same time period, the Upstate has helped Materials Science LLC as a small business expand our facilities, composite manufacturing capabilities, and employee base at an extraordinary rate,” said Tony Caiazzo, vice president of manufacturing at MSC, in a statement. “We’re excited for the bright future of our company as a part of a community that continues to foster innovation and economic development.”

The firm’s project is slated to reach completion this August. 34 new jobs will be created as the new plant goes operational. A $100,000 Set-Aside grant was approved by the Coordinating Council for Economic Development to help Greenville County cover some of the costs of building improvements. 

Founded in 1970, MSC provides custom composite materials to the commercial, energy, and defense sectors.
