Ortec, a leading biomaterial and polymer technology company, is expanding its Anderson County operations. The company intends to invest $20 million and create approximately 18 new jobs. This is Ortec’s latest expansion, following its previous $20 million investment and creation of 60 jobs in December 2016.
Founded in 1980, Ortec helps its clients reach market goals through technical expertise, high-quality systems, regulatory compliance, confidentiality and personalized service. The company develops and manufactures custom polymers for a wide variety of industries.

 

Ortec President Christopher Brotherton said, “Ortec is pleased to continue enlarging its corporate footprint here in South Carolina with this expansion of our Pendleton facility. We appreciate the level of cooperation between the S.C. Department of Commerce, Anderson County Economic Development and the town of Pendleton that will ensure the project’s success. This is not only an investment for our growth today, but for many years to come.”

Anderson County Councilman Brett Sanders, District 4 said, “Anderson County is pleased to celebrate Ortec’s expansion announcement, which is only possible through our partnership with the town of Pendleton and the Sandy Springs Water Company. This project is just the first of many economic development projects coming to the Pendleton and Sandy Springs communities.”

Located at 500 Westinghouse Road in Pendleton, Ortec will be expanding its existing facility by increasing its manufacturing capacity. Hiring for the new positions is projected to begin in the second quarter of 2019, and interested applicants should contact Pendleton.careers@ortecinc.com for more information.
