Zilmet has announced plans to open its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Georgetown County, South Carolina. The expansion tank and heat exchanger manufacturer will invest $32.7 million into the project, creating 50 new jobs in the process. Phase one of the mission is expected to be completed in 2024, and production at the facility will begin in 2025.
In a recent quote, Zilmet USA North American General Manager Scott Jacobsen said, “We are very pleased to be partnering with South Carolina and Georgetown County. This new facility will allow us to better serve our U.S. customer base in addition to freeing up existing capacity in Italy for our European and worldwide demand. The South Carolina team has been extremely helpful and accommodating every step of the way. Their ready SC program, which helps recruit and train potential employees, was a decisive factor in our move here.”
