COLUMBIA, S.C. – Zeus Industrial Products (Zeus), a leading polymer extrusion manufacturer and material science innovator, is expanding its existing operations in Aiken County. The company’s $15.7 million investment in Aiken County complements a $15.9 million expansion in Orangeburg County and $76 million expansion in Calhoun County, both of which were announced over the last several weeks. With this project, Zeus is expected to create an additional 51 new jobs in Aiken, S.C.
Founded in 1966, Zeus develops and manufacturers polymer tubing for a variety of industries, including the medical, fluid handling and electrical markets. Zeus works with customers in collaborative relationships to design, engineer and produce fluoropolymer and specialized plastic tubing that delivers the temperature resistance, chemical resistance and high tensile strength demanded by today’s applications.
Located at 9150 Levels Church Road West in Aiken, S.C., Zeus intends to convert its warehousing operations and floor space to manufacturing space in order to increase production of existing products by installing additional manufacturing lines. The plant will also be increasing its product portfolio as several new products and new manufacturing processes are introduced over the next few years.
The initial hiring for these new positions has already begun and will continue into 2019. Interested applicants should visit the company’s zeusinc.com/careers for more information.
