Behr Heat Transfer Systems will expand product portfolio at its Charleston County manufacturing plant, producing automotive components. The South Carolina Department of Commerce, Charleston County and the Charleston Regional Development Alliance made the announcement of Behr’s $3 million investment that will generate about 70 new jobs in the next several years.
Behr Plant Manager Peter Birk says “We are pleased to further solidify our presence in Charleston, and the introduction of two new products is an important step in our growth. Exhaust gas recirculation systems and charge air coolers, which will be produced in Charleston, are two central products in improving fuel efficiency.”
Secretary of Commerce Joe Taylor says “This is another indication that South Carolina’s business-friendly climate, skilled workforce and strong automotive industry provides the foundation needed to attract new investment into the state.”
