CRP Industries Inc. establishing operations in Horry County

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

CRP Industries Inc. manufactures 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

“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,” said CRP Industries Inc. CEO Dan Schildge.

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.

The company is headquartered in New Jersey and has locations in North Carolina and Mexico.
