$6.4 million investment to be completed by end of fourth quarter.

Bondex Inc., a maker of thermally bonded nonwoven materials said it is expanding its existing operations in Edgefield County, S.C. The $6.4 million investment is expected to generate 13 new jobs.

“We are excited about moving forward with our plans to expand our existing facility in Edgefield County," said Brad Willingham, president of Bondex Inc. "South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business environment and a talented workforce. We look forward to continuing to grow here. We appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials."

Bondex Inc. is expanding the company’s nonwovens production plant in Trenton, S.C. in order to add a new product line, which will allow the company to produce industrial laminates and composites for the electrical and electronic markets, as well as other specialty areas. The company will add 33,000 square feet of space to the facility, doubling the plant’s size. The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of this year's fourth quarter with production starting in January 2013.

“While we work every day to bring new companies and investment to South Carolina, it’s always exciting to see one of our existing businesses increase its footprint here. We celebrate Bondex Inc.’s decision to invest $6.4 million and create 13 new jobs in Trenton,” said South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

Since January 2011, South Carolina has recruited more than $7 billion in capital investment and more than 17,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector.

Bondex Inc. has operated in Trenton, S.C. since 1997.
