Roy Metal Finishing Growing Again with $16M Expansion
Roy Metal Finishing (RMF) is once again expanding its operations in Greenville, South Carolina, with a $16 million investment that is expected to generate at least 40 new jobs over the next two years.
RMF is one of the largest metal finishing companies on the East Coast, and has added more than 100 jobs since its expansion in 2011. The company currently operates three facilities in Greenville County, and serves many of the I-85 corridor’s automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment suppliers.
The new facility is expected to be complete this summer and will provide an additional 85,000 square feet.
“The region’s automotive, heavy truck and industrial equipment manufacturers continue to drive our growth,” says John Pazdan, RMF president and CEO. “We are seeing increased demand in our core businesses of electroplating, electrocoating and powder coating, as well as growth in warehousing, supply chain management and third-party inspection.”
Founded in 1961, RMF focuses on automated processes and chemical controls, providing environmentally friendly corrosion protection for aluminum and steel stampings, extrusions, castings and forgings.
“To see one of our existing companies succeed to the point that it is able to continue to invest and create jobs here is a real reason to celebrate,” says Gov. Nikki Haley. “This will make a real difference in Greenville County, and we couldn’t be more excited that this fantastic company continues to show its commitment to our state and to our people.”
