Company plans to create 200 textile jobs in SC

May 13, 2010 7:12:00 AM - thestate.com
A high-technology textile maker says it will create 200 jobs in South Carolina over the next five years.

Multiple media outlets reported that Alexium International Group said Wednesday it will spend $8 million for a plant in Greer.

Alexium director Stefan Susta says the Australian company will have a research and development lab in operation by the end of July. The facility will include limited production capabilities.

Alexium will develop its reactive surface technology developed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to improve the performance of surfaces, such as glass, plastic, paint, leather and fabrics.

Products range from aircraft paint applications to create slick surfaces that can withstand chemical attacks to military uniforms that protect against water and oil.
