Accurate Brazing, a full-service vacuum brazing and heat treating company and subsidiary of Aalberts N.V., announced plans to expand its Greenville County operations. The $13 million expansion is expected to create at least eight additional jobs.
“Greenville County is a great place for us to do business. It boasts good people, resources, a growing economy and easy access to transportation,” stated Aalberts material technology U.S. division COO Richard Wright.
Since 1989, Accurate Brazing has provided complex and detailed heat treating and brazing applications to support aircraft, ground turbine and power generation markets. The company is adept at heat treating materials that include stainless steel, super alloys, copper and refractory materials.
“Accurate Brazing’s decision to continue investing in South Carolina and our people shows that companies find the resources they need to be successful here,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. “We thank this great company for their ongoing commitment to our state.”
Accurate Brazing is a division of Aalberts N.V., one of the largest heat treating and brazing companies in the world. Committed to adaptation and innovation with a clear focus on customers, Aalberts N.V. employs approximately 16,500 people at more than 150 locations in 50 countries around the globe.
“This latest expansion by Accurate Brazing is a further demonstration that South Carolina's business-friendly climate, market access, and quality infrastructure are growing the economy and creating jobs,” added Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
Accurate Brazing is upgrading approximately 20,000 square feet of an existing facility located at 299 B Garlington Road in Greenville County to install a new world-class Hot Isostatic Press. The press is designed to improve ductility and stress resistance of critical, high-performance manufactured materials.
“County Council is pleased to congratulate Accurate Brazing on its new expansion in Greenville County,” said Greenville County Council Chairman and Board Member of the Greenville Area Development Corporation H.G. "Butch" Kirven. “As a market leader in high-quality vacuum brazing and heat treating of materials for the aircraft, ground turbine, and power generation markets, Accurate Brazing is a very important member of our business community and we are proud of their growth and success."
