Feb 06, 2018 09:52AM ● By Kathleen Maris
Zeus Industrial Products, Inc. (Zeus), a leading polymer extrusion manufacturer and material science innovator, is expanding its existing operations in Calhoun County and Orangeburg County. The company's $76 million investment in Calhoun is expected to create an additional 350 jobs over the next several years, and its $15.9 million investment in Orangeburg is expected to create an additional 20 jobs.

Founded in 1966, Zeus develops and manufacturers polymer tubing for a variety of industries, including the medical, fluid handling, and electrical markets. Zeus works with customers in collaborative relationships to design, engineer, and produce fluoropolymer and specialized plastic tubing that delivers the temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and high tensile strength.

The Calhoun expansion will occur approximately two miles from Zeus' existing Gaston facility, located off of I-26 near Exit 119. When completed in 2019, the facility will contain approximately 148,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

Zeus' global headquarters is located at 620 Magnolia Street in Orangeburg. The company will be adding 64,000 square feet to its existing facility in order to house engineering, equipment, and tooling design, parts fabrication, tooling production, and machine assembly operations in one centralized engineering center.

"We are truly excited about expanding our presence in Orangeburg," said President and CEO John Winarchick. "We have been pleased with all of the local and state support that we have received since commencing our Orangeburg operations back in 1982. We remain committed to being a good citizen of the county, meeting and exceeding the needs of our customers, and, most importantly, providing quality careers for all of our employees in an atmosphere that will allow them to flourish."
