Fujifilm’s primary US manufacturing and distribution complex, located in Greenwood, will serve as home to a new, state-of-the-art digital print lab. The company will soon begin modification of facilities at its 500-acre Greenwood campus to accommodate what is already the largest photo products company in the country. Officials says the new operation will bring up to 185 full-time jobs.
Fujifilm Printing Services supports many of the nation’s leading retail stores and online photo web sites. The company hopes to have the new operation up and running by fall. One service the new lab will handle will be personal photo gifts that will be delivered to customers at retails stores and through direct mail.
Fujifilm opened in Greenwood in 1988. The complex now has five labs that make printing plates, recyclable cameras and color photo paper. In recent years Fujifilm has consolidated its photo processing operation in the industry’s shift from analog to digital imaging.
Robbie Templeton, Greenwood County Council Chairman, says the expansion is a testament to the skilled workforce and business climate of Greenwood County.
