Honeywell Expands Aerospace Facility in South Carolina

Published: July 2017
 

GREER, S.C. Honeywell is increasing the capabilities of its aerospace facility in Greer, South Carolina. The facility is a major center for the company’s machining, special processes, and maintenance, repair and overhaul services for both commercial and military aircraft. The expansion is associated with Honeywell’s airfoil machining and special processes and is expected to create approximately 30 skilled high-tech jobs in South Carolina.

“The aerospace industry is one of the most competitive industries in the world, and South Carolina in particular hosts nearly 200 aerospace-related companies. Our facility expansion means that we not only increase our capabilities, but Honeywell continues to contribute to South Carolina’s burgeoning aerospace economy,” said Jason Lewandowski, senior director for the Greer Site, Honeywell Aerospace. “This investment positions our manufacturing network for future growth to help us maintain leadership and drive innovation. We will benefit greatly from South Carolina’s wealth of engineering and manufacturing talent to strengthen our technical capabilities and provide production support from Greer.”

Honeywell will invest more than $10 million to develop, maintain and expand its industry-leading aerospace site in Greer. The South Carolina Department of Commerce has also committed additional tax incentives over the next 20 years to support the continued progress of the facility. The facility’s growth is part of a sustained investment in the local Greer community with advanced aerospace facilities and the evolution of a specialized and experienced workforce in South Carolina.

The first phase of expansion at Honeywell’s Greer facility will begin in the third quarter of 2017 with an estimated completion date in 2019.
