Schaeffler is expanding its American Fort Mill plant in addition to improving infrastructure and the working environment. Schaeffler is creating 105 new jobs at its location in South Carolina, investing 36.5 million dollars.
Schaeffler has invested around 36.5 million US dollars, which equals approximately 32.5 million euros, in order to expand its production capacities of one of its two Fort Mill plants. Moreover, a new, multi-functional administration building has been set up, as well as a new plant entrance that has been adjusted to accommodate the location’s enlargement and increasing traffic.
Expanding the plant’s production space by around 3,250 square meters has increased capacities in the areas of stamping, heat treatment, and mounting of axial bearings, which are used in 8, 9, and 10-speed automatic transmissions. The new administration building offers around 6,000 square meters of space for modern office work places and, in addition to that, a multimedia conference centre, and a company restaurant.
