October 04, 2018

(Hampton, SC)--Nupi Americas, Inc., a North American subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., announced that the company will invest $6.2 million in an expansion of their current manufacturing and distribution facility at the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus in Hampton County.

Nupi Americas first located warehousing and distribution operations in Hampton County in 2015 that service both their existing and newly acquired customer base in the eastern United States.  Now the company is investing in growing their operations at their location, just off Exit 38 on I-95, with the construction of a 50,000 square-foot warehousing facility, which will mirror their current facility and allow for better integration of their manufacturing operations.

“We remain tremendously excited about our operations in Hampton County.  The opportunity  to expand our facility is a testament to the support we have received from local, regional and state institutions who have all helped us achieve our goals,” said Marco Genoni, CEO of NUPI Americas.  “We would specifically like to thank Hampton County and the SouthernCarolina Alliance for their continued support, and we look forward to continuing to grow our operations at the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus in Hampton County. In two years NUPI Americas will be able to manufacture 95 percent of the pipes sold in USA, avoiding the long lead time importing pipes from Europe.”

According to Genoni, the budget is to invest more than six million dollars in two years, adding, “NUPI SpA, the Italian holding company, trusts in the future US growth and wants to be ready to serve our customers with ‘MADE in USA’ pipes.”

“Nupi Americas has made a name for itself with its ongoing Hampton County operations, and today’s announcement of its expansion is tremendous news for Team South Carolina. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for Nupi Americas,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

Established in 2001 with facilities in Houston, Texas, Nupi Americas is a subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., which has been manufacturing and marketing the NIRON product line since 1982. NIRON is a complete polypropylene pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems and is the focus of the Hampton County operations.

“One of our local industries is growing just a short time after locating in Hampton County, and that is truly exciting,” said Dr. Roy Hollingsworth, Hampton County Council Chairman. “We congratulate Nupi Americas on their success and look forward to having them as a corporate citizen for many years to come.”

S.C. Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added, “The ongoing success of Nupi Americas’ existing operations in Hampton County speaks volumes about the business climate we’ve worked hard to cultivate in South Carolina. I congratulate both Nupi Americas and Hampton County on this great news.”

“Nupi’s investment and job creation in Hampton County has been a source of pride in our region,” said SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls.  “We are pleased that another international company continues to find success and reinvest in our community.  We salute the team at Nupi and thank them for their investment in our people.”

“Nupi is a great company manufacturing a fine product in our county, where every job created brings a brighter future for a family,” said Hampton EDC Chairman Bill Hager.  “We are proud that Nupi has chosen the assets of Hampton County, like our great location with both interstate and port access and our local workforce, not once—but twice.  We in Hampton County are thrilled to be the home of this growing Nupi Americas operation.”
