Georgia-headquartered Stren-Flex, a manufacturer of synthetic lifting products, is investing more than $1 million in new operations in Greenville County that will create 25 new jobs.
According to a news release from the S.C. Department of Commerce, Stren-Flex will lease a 16,000-square-foot building at 126 Corporate Drive in Simpsonville for the purposes of manufacturing and distribution of overhead lifting products. Hiring for the new positions is already underway and information is available on the company’s website.
"We are very excited to start up our new manufacturing facility in Greenville County. The quality of life in this region is at a very high level, and working with narrow woven textiles in our manufacturing process made Greenville County the right decision for us," said Roddy Rossborough, Stren-Flex president, in the release.
Founded in 2002, Stren-Flex manufactures a variety of synthetic lifting products, including nylon web slings, chain slings, wire rope slings, rigging, cargo control and more. Using high-quality webbing and high-tensile thread, the company provides products for a wide range of applications in the overhead lifting and cargo control industries, according to the release.
"Stren-Flex's locating within Simpsonville is an excellent decision based on the availability of existing buildings, interstate proximity and workforce,” said Greenville County Council Chairman H.G. "Butch" Kirven Jr., in the release.
