Tetramer Technologies is investing $1 million to expand its research and development operations in South Carolina, according to Area Development. The company creates and manufactures advanced polymer, oligomeric and nanocomposite materials in its growing facility in Anderson County, South Carolina, Greenville Online reported. It originally occupied 50 percent of the laboratory space at its current location but has expanded to fill all available space.
Tetramer believes staying at it's current location instead of moving is a win-win situation for the company as well as the community, Area Development reported. The building also has 2,000 square feet of warehouse space that can be used for further research and manufacturing growth in the next five years.
The company was able to stay in the building because members of Tetramer recently formed the South Mechanic Street Group, which purchased the location. The group's purpose is to help new companies develop in the Anderson County area as well as provide space for businesses to grow into.
The company created 25 new positions with the expansion.
Businesses expanding their operations should work with technology recruiters to find the most qualified candidates for their open positions.
