Gnotec bringing new jobs to Orangeburg County (Axis)

Gnotec Group, a supplier to the automotive industry, is locating new operations in Orangeburg County. The company’s $5.9 million investment is projected to create 78 new jobs in the community.

Gnotec specializes in the engineering and manufacturing of metal components for automotive and commercial vehicles’ body-in-white and chassis structures. With operations in China, Slovakia and Sweden, the company utilizes state-of-the-art automated technology in metal stamping, welding and assembly to provide customers with premium-quality solutions.

The company will be establishing operations in a 30,000-square-foot production facility at 152 Regional Parkway in Orangeburg, S.C. and is expected to come online in the first quarter of 2019. Hiring is slated to begin later this quarter, and interested applicants should visit for more information.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

Governor Henry McMaster says this is another example of how inviting South Carolina is to new and existing business.

“The talented workforce in South Carolina has established a reputation as one of the best in the world. Gnotec Group’s decision to locate here represents not only the strength of our automotive industry, but the strength of our state’s economy as a whole,” Gov. Henry McMaster said.
