A manufacturer of refrigerated transportation systems is planning to invest $30 million in expanding its factory in South Carolina.
Thermo King stated that the project will add approximately 300,000 square feet of manufacturing space to its Greenville operations to help the company’s future growth.
220 new jobs are expected to be created as a result of the project.
Hiring for the new positions, which include roles in production, engineering, information technology, and human resources, will begin immediately, with the company planning to hold job fairs and training events this summer.
The new facility is scheduled to begin operations by mid-2023.
Trane Technologies owns Thermo King, as well as its own air conditioner and furnace brands and a slew of other climate-control subsidiaries. Its solutions enable the safe and efficient shipment of food, medicine, and other vital cargo all over the world.
Karin De Bondt, Thermo King’s America’s president, said: “We are proud to expand our Thermo King operations to Greenville County, and we are grateful to the state of South Carolina for its partnership.”
State economic development officials approved an unnamed tax incentive package to support the project, along with a $400,000 grant to Greenville County for infrastructure improvements.
