Carbures opens second facility in Greenville County

April 10, 2013

Carbures LLC plans to hire up to 100 more employees and invest $400 million more in Greenville in the next three years with the opening of its second local facility in as many years.

The Cadiz, Spain-based manufacturer produces carbon and composite structures for the automotive, aerospace and infrastructure markets. Growth has continued as these markets push for more lightweight, durable and sustainable parts.

Carbures entered the U.S. market in 2011 with the establishment of its first U.S. facility and headquarters at the S.C. Technology & Aviation Center in Greenville County.

Carbures has since opened a second facility in Seattle in February, and celebrated Wednesday the opening of its second facility in Greenville in the Beechtree Business Park, down the road from SCTAC. Carbures currently employs 51 people in the U.S.

“The Carbures’ U.S. history is fast growing. The next goals of Carbures U.S. are to be a leader and a supplier of composite structures to the Southeast,” Carbures U.S. CEO Ivan Contreras said. “We plan to hire 100 workers more and invest $400 million more in the next three years.”
