MM Technics, an American subsidiary of automotive supplier Muhr Metalltechnik, is expanding its Newberry County operations. The $6 million investment is creating 35 new jobs.
MM Technics uses state-of-the-art machineries like servo presses and automated welding equipment to supply automotive companies throughout the United States and Europe.
Located at Mid-Carolina Commerce Park, MM Technics’ expansion includes an 18,000-square-foot addition to its facility, the purchase of a third metal stamping press and the installation of high-speed robotic welding systems. The expansion is designed to raise the capacities of stamping parts and install efficient and high-speed robotic cells for welding assemblies. This additional investment will meet the needs of the company’s primary customer, BMW, and will also allow the company to establish new business with other automotive manufacturers.
The expansion is expected to be complete in early 2020.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded Newberry County a $100,000 Set-Aside grant for costs related to the project.
