Custom injection molder Injection Technology Corp. will invest $5 million to expand into South Carolina.
The company announced plans April 3 to buy the shuttered Pine River Plastics Inc. plant in Westminster, S.C., to create Itech South, which will employ 95 people, according to a news release.
Itech is based in Arden and works with customers in prototype development, mold design, mold building and production.
The plant in South Carolina has been vacant since auto supplier Pine River of St. Clair, Mich., was forced to close in March 2007. The Itech purchase includes the plant and equipment. Company officials told local media the firm plans to begin production in May and will add employees throughout the next 18 months.
