ZEUS INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS, INC. EXPANDING ITS CALHOUN COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA OPERATIONS

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Zeus Industrial Products, Inc. (Zeus), a leading polymer extrusion manufacturer and material science innovator, is expanding its existing operations in Calhoun County. The company’s $76 million investment is expected to create an additional 350 jobs over the next several years.

Founded in 1966, Zeus develops and manufacturers polymer tubing for a variety of industries, including the medical, fluid handling and electrical markets. Zeus works with customers in collaborative relationships to design, engineer and produce fluoropolymer and specialized plastic tubing that delivers the temperature resistance, chemical resistance and high-tensile strength demanded by today’s applications.

The expansion will occur approximately two miles from Zeus’ existing Gaston, S.C. facility, located off of I-26 near Exit 119. When completed in 2019, the facility will contain approximately 148,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Hiring for the initial phase of new positions will begin during the first quarter of 2018.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. A $1 million Rural Infrastructure Fund grant was also awarded to Calhoun County to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
