Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC), a technology-driven designer and advanced manufacturer of composite materials and structures for government and industry, has formally announced plans to expand its presence in Greenville County with the addition of a second facility. The company's $2.7 million capital investment is projected to create 23 new jobs over the next five years.
Headquartered in Horsham, Pa., MSC was established in 1970 as an engineering services organization, providing research, design, analysis, testing, and prototyping of composite materials. The company has nearly 50 employees, including 30 engineers, in existing operations in Alabama, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina and is globally-recognized for its development of specialty algorithms that simulate and predict composite performance. MSC's proprietary technologies allow it to develop custom composite materials for clients in the commercial, defense, energy and recreation sectors.
The company's new, 32,000-square-foot facility will be located at 101 Pelham Davis Circle in Greenville. and will complement continuing operations at MSC's existing facility, which is situated at the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center in Greenville. The new facility will allow for increased research and development opportunities, as well as the manufacturing and commercialization of advanced composites for use in commercial applications.
"Our mission is to continuously develop, test, improve, and manufacture advanced materials that can be transferred into applications of high value," said Tom Cassin, president and CEO. "We have been very pleased with our operations in Greenville County and South Carolina and look forward to continuing to grow and contribute to the success of the Palmetto State."
