Located at 110 Valley View Road in Fountain Inn, the custom tool manufacturer will build a 7,600-square-foot office building adjacent to its existing facility. It will also be expanding manufacturing capabilities at the site. Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the year, and completion is expected by late 2018, according to a news release.
"One of Mapal's mottos is 'Always close to the customer, everywhere.' For the Southeast, we chose the Greenville area and that has been a great success story,” said Mapal COO Rene Kristensen, in the release. “This expansion will allow us to better serve our customers as well as expand our customer base.”
