It reflects the scale of our ambition and belief in Greenville as a fantastic hub to attract talent and will service the needs of the North American market,” said Paxton Access CEO Adam Stroud in the release. “We anticipate a rapid expansion of our technology manufacturing capability and delivery of associated services, generating jobs in the local community.”

Relocating within Greenville County to 28 Global Drive in the Global Trade Park in Greenville, Paxton Access’ new facility will serve as the company’s U.S. headquarters and accommodate the company’s growth trajectory, the release stated.
