Crown Group expects to hire 42 with new Greenville plant

The Crown Group, which provides coating services to the automotive, heavy truck and agriculture industries, said Wednesday its new Greenville County plant represents a $5.4 million investment and should generate 42 jobs over the next five years.

"Given South Carolina's success in these industries, we are very excited to expand our operations to Greenville," said Frank Knoth, president of The Crown Group. "South Carolina has proven itself as a leader in advanced manufacturing, and we look forward to becoming a part of the state's expansive network of manufacturers and suppliers. We anticipate great things from the people of South Carolina."

The plant is the company's seventh in the U.S. and first in South Carolina. The facility allows the company to work more closely with existing clients and to expand its footprint into the Southeast, officials said. Its location, 101 Milledge Road, is in the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center in southern Greenville County.

"The Crown Group's $5.4 million investment and the creation of 42 new jobs in Greenville show once again why South Carolina now leads the southeast in manufacturing growth. The company's investment bolsters the thriving automotive industry in the Upstate and is more proof that South Carolina is a great place to do business," said Gov. Nikki Haley.

"Their decision to expand operations to SCTAC is an important affirmation of this region's focus on growing our automotive and aerospace clusters," said Bob Taylor, chairman of Greenville County Council and board member of the Greenville Area Development Corp.

The state's Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits.
