Aluminum casting company putting plant in Laurens; 57 new jobs

Friday, Apr 19, 2013

Alupress AG, an aluminum casting company based in Italy, said it will establish its new production facility in Laurens County. The $19.9 million investment is expected to generate 57 new jobs.

“We are pleased with the opportunity to move forward with plans to locate our new production facility in Laurens County,” said Wolfgang Knollseisen, chief financial officer of Alupress AG. “The new plant will give us close proximity to our customers.”

Alupress recently purchased Koerber LLC, now named Alupress LLC, in Laurens, and the company will open a new 30,000-square-foot aluminum castings plant. The plant will manufacture products for automotive industry clients. The new facility is expected to begin operations in 2014.

“It’s always exciting to see another international company choose to set up shop in the Palmetto State. This announcement is also another win for one of our state’s rural areas. We celebrate Alupress’ decision to invest $19.9 million and create 57 new jobs in Laurens County,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.

“We are extremely pleased to see our existing industry grow. Alupress is another example of industry realizing success in a rural county,” said Laurens County Council Jim Coleman.
