Avtec Moves Forward with Building 46,000 Square Foot
Headquarters and Manufacturing Facility in Lexington County
Groundbreaking Ceremony Set for Monday, October 22
Lexington, S.C. (Oct. 17, 2012) – The Central SC Alliance announced it will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Monday, October 22 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., in recognition of Avtec Inc.’s new corporate headquarters that is being built in the Town of Lexington, S.C. A photo opportunity for media is scheduled at 10 a.m. The event will be held at Avtec’s property near the intersection of Glassmaster Road and South Lake Drive in Lexington, S.C. Avtec plans to invest over $6 million in the new multi-purpose building, which is expected to be completed in May 2013.
Lexington Mayor Randy Halfacre will emcee the event. Remarks will be given by Mandy Brawley, project manager at the South Carolina Department of Commerce; William B. “Bill” Banning, Sr., chairman of Lexington County Council; Jim B. Apple, chairman of the Central SC Alliance; Stephen Koewler, president of Miller-Valentine; and Michael Branning, president of Avtec.
“What a great day for South Carolina, Lexington County, the Town of Lexington, and especially for Avtec’s employees. It’s very exciting when a local company that was founded here over 30 years ago continues to invest and reinvest time and time again. This multi-million dollar investment represents new jobs for our citizens and new dollars spent in the local community — all as a result of Avtec’s success,” said Central SC Alliance chairman Jim Apple.
“We are delighted to partner with local companies such as Miller-Valentine on this project,” said Avtec’s President Michael Branning. “With our rapid growth over the past few years, we need more room to accommodate our expansion. Avtec’s new building will allow us to better serve our customers, many of whom travel from out-of-state for training at our facility. We’re also providing an enhanced work environment with expanded facilities for our employees.”
