NUPI Americas, Inc., a subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., today announced plans to expand operations in Hampton County. The $4.3 million investment will create 28 new jobs.

“Five years ago, we began our ‘business adventure’ in South Carolina, intending to stay and grow within the state. We are now ready to again take another step forward and expand our business to target our goal of exponential market growth in the U.S. A special thanks goes to the state of South Carolina, Hampton County and the SouthernCarolina Alliance for their continued support and confidence in our growing business,” said Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A. CEO and NUPI Americas, Inc. President and CEO Marco Genoni.  “We must also thank our cherished employees at our Early Branch facility who, during this pandemic and the tremendous disruptions it has caused, have performed admirably and provided the leadership and hard work that have made our continued growth possible.”

Founded in 2001, NUPI Americas, Inc. is a plastic fabrication company specializing in the manufacturing and marketing of the NIRON, SMARTFLEX and ELOFIT product lines. These product lines offer a complete pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems; gasoline and diesel in service stations; and water and natural gas underground.

“It’s always a great day when we can announce new jobs, especially those in our rural counties.  We thank NUPI Americas, Inc. for their commitment to South Carolina, and we look forward to seeing the continued growth these 28 jobs will bring to Hampton County,” said S.C. Governor Henry McMaster.

"South Carolina's manufacturing industry continues to grow, and we celebrate yet another victory for that sector with today’s announcement that NUPI Americas, Inc. is expanding its Hampton County operations. I offer my congratulations to the company and the local community on this continued partnership,” added Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

Hampton County Council Chairman Buddy Phillips remarked, “We are grateful to NUPI Americas, Inc. for their commitment to Hampton County and South Carolina as they continue to grow their business. A leading manufacturer with international reach, NUPI’s dedication to excellence is a point of pride for our community, where every job created brings new opportunities and speaks to the quality of our workforce.”

“SouthernCarolina Alliance congratulates NUPI Americas, Inc. on their success in Hampton County, and we thank them for their investment in our people. This marks the company’s second expansion since first locating at the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus in 2015. We are both proud and appreciative of their continued growth and investment in our regional economy,” said SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls.

“We appreciate the teamwork that it takes to create this kind of success, and we thank NUPI for choosing Hampton County for the third time,” said Hampton County Economic Development Commission Chairman Bill Hager.  “They chose to locate here five years ago, and now they have expanded for the second time.  Great things are happening in Hampton County.  We have several new companies bringing in large numbers of jobs, while our existing industries like NUPI are growing and investing in our people and our community. NUPI is an asset to our industrial community, providing direct and indirect jobs in Hampton County, and they are getting 2021 off to a good start for our region.”
