Caterpillar locating new operations in Greenwood County
Casting facility to create 85 new jobs
GREENWOOD, S.C. – Caterpillar Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives, will locate a casting facility in Greenwood County. The company’s $13.5 million investment is projected to create 85 new jobs.

“We are excited to have the Hodges facility join our global manufacturing footprint" says Tana Utley, Vice President of Caterpillar Large Power Systems Division. "Hodges will provide Caterpillar with a cost-effective source for supply for many of our specialty iron castings. We want to thank Greenwood County community leaders and representatives from the state of South Carolina for their support throughout our evaluation of this opportunity. We look forward to our continued partnership.”

To establish this facility, Caterpillar has purchased an existing 103,000-square-foot building located at 108 Corporate Court in Hodges, S.C. Slated to come online in early 2019, the facility will produce specialty castings used in a variety of engines and transmissions within the Caterpillar product line and will supplement the production of existing castings elsewhere in the Caterpillar production network.

Hiring is expected to begin immediately, and interested applicants can visit http://www.caterpillar.com/careers/ for more information.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
