CRP Industries Inc. Establishing Operations in Horry County

 CRP Industries Inc., a leading manufacturer in the automotive parts and industrial products sectors, today announced plans to establish operations in Horry County. The $2.5 million investment will create approximately 115 jobs over the next five years.

"After completing extensive due diligence on several potential new locations for our expanded operations, we chose Conway and Horry County because of their workforce, their focus on supporting new businesses as demonstrated by strong financial and administrative assistance to our project and the technical partnership offered by Horry-Georgetown Technical College. We are excited to begin this new chapter in the growth of CRP Industries Inc. with the State of South Carolina, Horry County and the city of Conway as our partners," says CRP Industries Inc. CEO Dan Schildge.
CRP Industries Inc. provides some of the most recognized brand name products in its market, including AAE steering components; Rein Automotive replacement parts; Pentosin technical fluids; Continental belts and belt kits; AJUSA gaskets and head bolts; Reinflex high-pressure thermoplastic hose; and Perske high-speed motors. The company is headquartered in New Jersey and has locations in North Carolina and Mexico. 

"Whenever a new company decides to invest within our borders, it marks the beginning of a partnership that we know will benefit South Carolinians for a long time. I look forward to watching CRP Industries Inc. thrive in the state and make a positive impact in Horry County and beyond," says Gov. Henry McMaster.
Located at 3084 Bashor Road in Conway, S.C., CRP Industries Inc. will establish operations in a newly-constructed 50,000-square-foot facility. The facility will initially be used to manufacture advanced electric power steering systems for the automotive aftermarket under the CRP Industries Inc. brand of AAE, with plans to expand into other products over time. 
Operations are expected to be online in mid-September of this year.
