The expansion of a Winnsoboro facility means more jobs for Fairfield County. Elite Electronic Systems announced today that it’s expanding its U.S. operations, headquartered in Fairfield County. The company will relocate from its 30,000-square-foot facility in Winnsboro to the 50,000-square-foot spec building Walter Brown II Industrial Park.
Based in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, Elite Electronic Systems is a contract electronics manufacturer that provides a broad range of full turnkey contract electronics manufacturing services. The company opened Elite ES in Winnsboro in 2006 primarily to supply Caterpillar in Newberry.
Secretary of Commerce Joe Taylor says:
This expansion demonstrates that South Carolina has laid the groundwork necessary to encourage investment and growth among our existing businesses. Our state’s focus on the fundamentals such as keeping taxes and regulatory burdens low and maintaining a highly skilled workforce are working to attract new jobs and investment.
The five year plan calls for 100 jobs and $2.5 million dollars in capital investment. Hiring is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2011.
