MM Technics expanding operations in Newberry County

$6 Million Investment Creating 35 New Jobs

MM Technics, an American subsidiary of automotive supplier Muhr Metalltechnik, is expanding its Newberry County operations. The $6 million investment is creating 35 new jobs.

MM Technics uses state-of-the-art machineries like servo presses and automated welding equipment to supply automotive companies throughout the United States and Europe.

Located at Mid-Carolina Commerce Park, MM Technics’ expansion includes an 18,000-square-foot addition to its facility, the purchase of a third metal stamping press and the installation of high-speed robotic welding systems. The expansion is designed to raise the capacities of stamping parts and install efficient and high-speed robotic cells for welding assemblies. This additional investment will meet the needs of the company’s primary customer, BMW, and will also allow the company to establish new business with other automotive manufacturers.

The expansion is expected to be complete in early 2020.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded Newberry County a $100,000 Set-Aside grant for costs related to the project.

“The launch-up of our green-field project facility at Mid-Carolina Commerce Park is a great story of success. For a year and a half now, MM Technics has supplied a large number of serial body parts for the new SUV models X3 and X5, in perfect accordance with the quality and logistical needs of our major client, BMW, in Spartanburg. Our amazing team at MM Technics is a great mix of experienced high-skilled experts and young college graduates. The trouble-free start-up gives us the opportunity to expand into additional stamping capacity and into high-tech welding assembly work. We greatly appreciate the repeated support by the state, the county and their cooperating partners.” –MM Technics President Meinolf Muhr
