General Machine of Anderson expanding manufacturing operations
$800,000 investment expected to create 20 new jobs
General Machine of Anderson will expand its metalworking and manufacturing operations in Anderson County. The $800,000 investment is expected to generate at least 20 new jobs.
“It’s an exciting time for our business and this expansion is a big step for our company. We are seeing demand for our products and services grow, and this expansion will help us meet that demand. Anderson County has provided us with an excellent business environment and a talented workforce. We look forward to continuing to grow here in Anderson,” said Mike Ertzberger, president of General Machine of Anderson.
General Machine of Anderson is adding manufacturing space that will house additional equipment and allow the company to increase its machining fabricating, sheet metal and manufacturing capacity. Phase one of the two-phase expansion, the construction of an assembly building, is complete. Ertzberger said phase two of the expansion will be the addition of fabricating space, and should be completed by November.
“While we work every day to bring new companies to South Carolina, it’s always exciting to see one of our existing business increase its footprint here. We celebrate the decision of General Machine of Anderson to expand and create 20 new jobs in Anderson. Announcements like this show we are on the right track with our economic development efforts,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
