KOBELCO chose the Spartanburg location from nearly 50 candidate sites across eight states for the property’s vast amount of land and nearby access to major domestic ports. Sitting on approximately 85 acres, KOBELCO’s $41 million investment involves the development of a 156,000 square foot production plant, 17,000 square foot office building and areas for both machinery parking and testing. The property also provides KOBELCO with plenty of space for future production capacity expansion. With site preparation for the facility underway, construction is expected to be complete in December 2015 and mass production of 1,800 units/year will begin in January 2016.
