OneH2, a sustainable hydrogen solutions company, is expanding its U.S. footprint by establishing the company’s first South Carolina operation in York County.
The $16 million investment will create 87 new jobs by 2026, according to a news release from the South Carolina Department of Commerce.
OneH2 purchased a 246,091-square-foot building located at 6199 Highway 57 in Clover. The company will use this facility for warehousing and to manufacture hydrogen fuel equipment.
“We are thrilled to continue our expansion with the purchase of the Clover, South Carolina, facility,” said Swapnil Revankar, vice president of product at OneH2. “Our existing manufacturing facility in North Carolina is already operating at maximum. By opening this new facility, we will be able to scale our production and grow our hydrogen equipment footprint across the U.S. at a rapid pace.”
Created in 2015 and headquartered in Longview, North Carolina, OneH2 designs and manufactures innovative products ranging from hydrogen production plants and distribution equipment to vehicle powertrains and fuel systems, the release stated. Its products provide the North American industrial vehicles market with cost-effective power solutions.
With a presence in California, Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina, the company aims to establish a nationwide hydrogen infrastructure network that will make transitioning to hydrogen fuel easier and more economical for business owners and industrial operations, the release stated.
Operations will be online in stages, starting in the first quarter of 2024 with the initial workforce. The final stage will be completed in 2025 with the full workforce.
“We welcome OneH2 to York County and look forward to their $16 million investment in our community and for bringing 87 new jobs for our residents,” York County Council Chairwoman Christi Cox said in the release. “This expansion into S.C. signals a boost to our local economy and underscores York County’s appeal for innovative businesses. We look forward to OneH2 establishing its South Carolina operation and their contributions to our local growth and prosperity.”s
