Techtronic Industries (TTI), a global leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of quality consumer, professional and industrial products, is expanding its manufacturing and distribution operations in Anderson County. The $85 million investment will create at least 216 new jobs in Anderson, S.C. over the next five years.
“Investing and expanding our South Carolina operations is a critical component of our continued success,” said TTI Power Equipment, Power Tool & Outdoor Product Presidents Mike Farrah & Lee Sowell.. “The new facility will allow us to better serve our customers and enhance our leadership position in the U.S. Power Tool and Outdoor Products Marketplace. We’d also like to thank our South Carolina partners – Governor Nikki Haley, the South Carolina Department of Commerce and Anderson County – for helping this project come to fruition.”
Founded in 1985, TTI has continuously expanded around the world through organic growth and strategic acquisitions. TTI now boasts among its portfolio some of the world’s most famous and iconic brands. The company’s brands include Milwaukee®, AEG®, Ryobi®, Homelite®, Hoover®, Oreck®, Vax® and Dirt Devil ®. As a global leader in the home improvement, construction and consumer product markets, the company employs more than 20,000 workers worldwide.
To expand its Anderson County operations, TTI will construct a new 1.3 million-square-foot distribution, assembly and reconditioning center. The new distribution center will be constructed near the I-85 / S.C. Hwy. 81 interchange. This expansion will significantly improve efficiency and productivity at the company’s Upstate operations, as well as increase the distribution of TTI’s outdoor products and power tools.
The facility is expected to be up and running by the end of the second quarter of 2016. For more information on the Techtronic Industries, visit www.ttigroup.com. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
