Industry Spotlight

Meter Bearings Group, a designer and producer of ball and cylindrical roller bearings, will establish its first U.S. manufacturing facility in the Southern Carolina region of South Carolina at a 48,000- square-foot facility in Walterboro.  The $4.5 million investment is expected to create 48 new jobs over the next five years and will begin production in 2015.

A family-owned company, Meter Bearings Group is headquartered in Robassomero, Torino, Italy. Founded in 1981, Meter has manufacturing plants in Italy and China and customer support offices in Germany and the United States.

“Part of our growth strategy is to establish a manufacturing operation in the United States to reach our customers that already exist there.  We chose Colleton County, thanks to the great and professional support of the South Carolina Department of Commerce staff and local officials,” said Vittorio Musso, President and CEO of Meter S.p.A.

Meter Bearings Group will utilize the Port of Charleston for its importing and exporting needs, which influenced the company’s decision to locate in South Carolina.  The company is coordinating with readySC®, South Carolina’s renowned worker training program led by the S.C. Technical College system, to create a customized, pre-employment training program that meets Meter Bearings Group’s standards of precision in manufacturing.
