Two Union County Projects to Bring Jobs

Posted: Updated:
UNION COUNTY, S.C. -

Union City Council included several items involving expansion of projects set to bring more jobs to the city.

The Union Daily Times reports members unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding between the city and "Project STC2" regarding discharge of digested waste activated sludge in the city's sewer system.

"Project STC2" has proposed an expansion of its existing operations and is expecting to produce an investment of $2.5 million and create 15 new, full-time jobs.

Also, the council approved a memorandum of understanding, referred to as "Project Metric" and is in operation as Gonvauto.  The memorandum allows the company to pay "Inside Industrial Economic Development" rates for water consumption, waster water and gas for three years.

Gonvauto SC is owned by Gonvarri Steel Services, a Spanish firm which provides steel processing to manufacturers. The facility is the first American steel service center and was built to supply the nearby Gestamp South Carolina LLC automotive parts manufacturing facility. 

The Union Daily Times reports Gonvarri has made an initial investment of $35 million in its facility, which is projected to create 40 new jobs.  The company says they plan to make an additional investment of $15 million and create additional 25 jobs over the next 10 years.
