Vinyl floor manufacturer Responsive Industries plans to establish new operations in Greenville County. The company’s initial $10 million investment will create 10 new jobs.
“Responsive Industries is proud to join the Greenville County community with our new distribution center,” company COO Doug Van Nest said in a news release today. “We have committed to holding inventory stateside to avoid interruptions in the ever-changing global supply, and our ultimate goal is to manufacture our floors right here in South Carolina. We’re excited for the future and the opportunities to grow and work with the great people in South Carolina.”
Headquartered in India, Responsive Industries is a manufacturer of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products, specializing in vinyl plank, sheet vinyl and vinyl tile. The company also offers a portfolio of wood and stone selections designed for offices, retail space, residential areas and other uses.
“It’s always gratifying to see a global company choose to locate U.S. operations in Greenville County, as it proves that our pro-business environment, available talent and optimal location can help it flourish here,” Greenville County Council Chair and Greenville Area Development Corp. board member Willis Meadows said in the news release. “Congratulations to Responsive Industries on their decision to place distribution and customer support services here. We look forward to helping them grow and thrive.”
Located at 360 Old Laurens Road in the Access Point Industrial Park in Mauldin, Responsive Industries’ operation in Greenville County will serve as a distribution center. The facility will manage all facets of the company’s operations in the United States including logistics, sales, technical services and after-sales service, the news release said.
Responsive products are currently available in more than 5,000 SKUs in more than 70 countries.
“The city of Mauldin is proud to welcome Responsive Industries as the newest member of our global business community. We are delighted they have chosen Mauldin and Greenville County to locate U.S. operations in and look forward to supporting Responsive Industries’ growth and success here long into the future,” Mauldin Mayor Terry Merritt said in a release.
