British-based fork-arms manufacturer MSI-Forks Inc. is expanding existing operations in York County. The company is investing $3.5 million to construct a larger facility and create 33 new jobs over the next five years.
The company is constructing a new 40,000-square-foot facility in the Antrim Business Park in Rock Hill, S.C. The new facility will also serve as the company’s North American headquarters in addition to housing MSI-Forks’ existing York County manufacturing operations and is expected to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2016.
“MSI-Forks has been present in the U.S. since 1994 and the new South Carolina manufacturing plant will help us to consolidate and expand our position in North America,” said Caio Lima, MSI-Forks Inc. CEO. “It shows our long-term commitment to the material handling industry in the United States.”
