VPET USA, LLC, will spend $10.8 million to create a new molding and injection molding site in Spartanburg County, S.C.
The company manufactures custom and stock PET containers for the nutrition, food and beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical and health care industries. As a worldwide PET supplier, the company produces Bisphenol-A (BPA) free PET bottles and wide-mouth jars.
“VPET USA, LLC is honored to work with the state of South Carolina and Spartanburg County to expand our manufacturing operations to the Upstate,” said Chief Executive Officer Jeff Kellar. “This new production facility both aligns with and complements our business growth strategy and provides us with the capacity to support our growing customer base.
“We’d like to sincerely thank Spartanburg County and the state for their outstanding support, and we look forward to their continued partnership for years to come.”
The new location is expected to open in October 2022.
Spartanburg County operations, on Victor Hill Road in Greer, will initially serve as a blow molding and injection molding plant supplying customers in the Southeast. The company also has manufacturing facilities in California, Illinois and Texas.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $150,000 Set-Aside grant for building improvements.
“VPET USA, LLC expanding their national reach with a facility in Spartanburg County proves again how big a player our county is in the larger economy, particularly with manufacturing, distribution and logistics,” said David Britt, Spartanburg County councilman and chairman of the state’s economic development committee.
“We’re excited to welcome VPET USA, LLC to Spartanburg and excited to see them build their success here.”
