COLUMBIA, S.C. – Advanced Ceramic Coatings (ACC), a 50-50 joint venture between GE Aviation and Turbocoating Corporation, will be launching new operations in Spartanburg County.
This project represents $15 million in new capital investment and the creation of 50 new jobs.
ACC says they combine Turbocoating’s proprietary coatings technologies and industrial processes with GE Aviation’s coatings processes developed specifically for ceramic matrix composite (CMC) material.
They say this combination will allow the company to produce advanced coatings for GE’s high-temperature CMC components in jet engines.
Located at 1191 Howell Road in Duncan, S.C., the company’s new 62,500-square-foot facility is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2017.
Hiring for the new positions is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2017, and those interested in applying should email the company at ACCcareers@advanced-ceramic-coatings.com.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits, as well as a $250,000 Set Aside grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the costs of real property improvements related to the project.
