Flame Spray North America To Expand Operations

Aug 31, 2018 03:43PM ● By Kathleen Maris
Flame Spray North America is expanding its existing manufacturing facility in Laurens County. The company recently purchased neighboring property to its existing facility, located in Woodfield Industrial Park. This acquisition will broaden Flame Spray’s capabilities to service the aerospace market in the United States by dedicating this facility to treating aircraft engine components with thermal spray coatings.

Flame Spray North America, which produces thermal spray coating mainly for industrial gas turbines and aircraft components, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Italian firm Flame Spray S.p.A. In 2011, the company established operations in Fountain Inn, its only presence outside of Europe. The global company also operates facilities in Italy, Hungary, and Croatia.

In support of the plan to grow its operations, Flame Spray foresees a total investment of $4,000,000 and the hiring of 20 new employees within the next three years. 

“I would like to thank the County of Laurens for their continued support offered since the establishment of Flame Spray North America, Inc. in 2011. With this new acquisition, we look forward to accelerating our strategic plan to expand our business into the aircraft market as well as growing the job market by creating new jobs and boosting the economy in Laurens County,” said Marco Prosperini, president and CEO.
