Alpharetta, Georgia-based SWM International, makers of films and laminates used in a variety of industries, including signage and graphics production, announces its recent move into a new state-of-the-art facility in Prosperity, South Carolina.
The company previously had a facility in that city, but this move is into a new building that anchors a new industrial park being built there by local economic development authorities.
The grand opening featured various community leaders, local and state business development officials, other local business leaders, and of course, SWM employees, board of directors members, and CEO Dr. Jeffrey Kramer.
According to the company, the Prosperity facility will specialize in a unique printing process for the company’s patented LIP (Low Ignition Propensity) coating technology.
The new location has allowed the company to add production equipment, increasing its operating capacity. About 50 people staff the new location.
“SWM is a global manufacturing company that brings great jobs and exciting career opportunities to our local residents, actively participates in our community, and contributes to our local economy,” said Wayne Adams, a county administrator for Newberry County, where Properity is located. “They have been a part of our business community since 2007 and we are delighted to see the company settled into this great facility where they can continue to operate and grow here in Prosperity for many years to come.”
Added Kramer, “We are delighted to be up and running in our new Prosperity facility. This move has allowed our team to optimize and streamline our operations, while adding capacity and room for future growth. I want to thank Newberry County and South Carolina leaders for their support as we worked through the process of completing the build-out and moving into the facility.”
