Big Gun Robotics LLC, a robotic welding company that supplies heavy equipment manufacturers, is expanding its operations in Newberry County. The more than $3.6 million investment is creating 16 new jobs over the next five years.

Founded in 2014, Big Gun Robotics LLC services the business-to-business market in South Carolina and throughout the Southeast. The company manufactures large steel assemblies for mining and heavy construction equipment like front loaders and excavators. 

“This expansion is a testament to our hard-working team and loyal customers, and it will allow Big Gun Robotics LLC to achieve greater efficiency and volume," says Big Gun Robotics LLC Owner Lee Norris. "As a company that’s proud to hire locally, this expansion will have a positive impact on the local economy. Newberry County and South Carolina have provided us with an excellent business environment and we look forward to continuing to grow here.”

Located at 114 Mawsons Way in Newberry County, Big Gun Robotics LLC is purchasing the property, as well as adding a 20,000-square-foot expansion to provide space for additional equipment and employees. 

“It’s always exciting to watch a homegrown company, like Big Gun Robotics LLC, as they expand their business in our state. This investment and the 16 new jobs it means for Newberry County are something that all of Team South Carolina should be proud of,” says Gov. Henry McMaster.
