A plastics manufacturer is expanding its Anderson County operations — a $6.2 million investment that will create 24 new jobs.
Additive Plastics Group LLC, a manufacturer of color and additive concentrates, specialty compounds and custom engineered products, plans to upfit its existing facility located at 227 Youth Center Road in Belton. Additive Plastics will also add a new, 25,000-square-foot building at the same site to accommodate increased logistics demand, according to an Upstate SC Alliance news release.
“APG has been growing year over year, and we are proud to be able to have a positive impact on Anderson County and its people,” said Additive Plastics Group President Marc Vanover.
Additive Plastics custom formulates and compounds a broad variety of polymers, enhancing both the aesthetic and mechanical performance of these materials, while supporting a wide variety of industries and applications, according to the release. By merging science with an understanding of product goals and attention to detail of manufacturing and quality requirements, the group helps pinpoint an ideal combination of polymers and polymer additives, which are designed to meet the most demanding of applications.
“With a focus on customer needs, APG has amassed its own formula for success,” said South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III. “This additional investment provides an opportunity to offer ideal plastic solutions to create next-level products.”
Operations will begin online in October of 2024.
“Thank you to Additive Plastics Group, Inc. for bringing quality jobs creation and investment to an area of Anderson County where it is much needed,” said Anderson County Council District Seven Councilwoman M. Cindy Wilson.s
