KV Final, a Czech developer and producer of metal parts for the automotive industry, is locating its new operations in Spartanburg County. The company's $2.5 million investment is projected to create approximately 50 new jobs during its first phase of operation.
KV Final is a premiere manufacturer and supplier of stamped, machined and welded parts and assemblies for the automotive industry. With existing locations in China and the Czech Republic, the company's new Spartanburg County plant will feature welding, clinching and degreasing processes, as well as local customer support.
Located at 325 Old Greenville Road in Spartanburg, S.C., the company's 32,000-square-foot facility is expected to come online in the first quarter of 2019. Until now, KV Final has been operating out of the Spark Center SC, a local landing pad facility. Hiring for the new positions is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2019, and interested applicants should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
