Located at 500 Westinghouse Road in Pendleton, S.C., Ortec will be expanding its existing facility by 50,000 square feet and increasing its manufacturing capacity.
"Ortec is pleased to continue enlarging its corporate footprint here in South Carolina with this expansion of our Pendleton facility. We appreciate the level of cooperation between the S.C. Department of Commerce, Anderson County Economic Development, and the town of Pendleton that will ensure the project's success. This is not only an investment for our growth today, but for many years to come." -Ortec President Christopher Brotherton
