GEORGETOWN — A Georgetown-based design and manufacturing company continues to grow 26 years after its founding, this time with an $18 million investment that is expected to create nearly 100 new jobs.
Envirosep recently added to its base of operations near the Georgetown County Airport with a new 100,000-square-foot, four-story addition, the second major expansion for the company since 2016 when it invested $5.2 million in the county.
A dedication ceremony was held Nov. 18 at its headquarters located off U.S. 17 South in the Maryville section of Georgetown.
“We are very excited that our planned expansion has become a reality,” said Tim Tilley, president and CEO, in a statement. “The new facility will provide Envirosep Manufacturing with 80 tons of individual lifting capacity, at a hook height of greater than 50 feet.”
Tilley founded EnviroSep in 1996. In 2002, the company constructed a manufacturing facility and office in Georgetown.
Envirosep designs and manufactures integrated solutions with automation and controls for fluid handling, heat transfer and energy recovery.
It is a full-service engineering and manufacturing firm that specializes in producing modular central utility plants and skidded fluid handling and heat transfer systems for industrial or commercial applications.
“Having the ability to factory manufacture multistory modular systems up to four stories and testing them as a complete assembly will be the ultimate customer experience during a factory test,” said Brian Coakley, vice president of sales, in a statement.
Georgetown County Council Chairman Louis Morant said he supports Envirosep as they continue to expand in Georgetown County while adding additional jobs.
“Envirosep, a home-grown company, is a leading employer and innovator in Georgetown County,” Morant said in a release. “Since inception, the company has continuously demonstrated their commitment to the community and this most recent expansion is further evidence of that commitment.”
Envirosep Director of Operations George Wood noted the company is currently hiring industrial electricians, project managers, pipe fitters and welders.
