Advanced Composite Materials LLC (ACM) recently announced it will expand operations at its existing facility in Greenville County, S.C., investing $3 million and creating 6-10 new jobs. The company established its headquarters, research and development lab, and manufacturing facility in Greer, S.C., in 2007 to manufacture silicon carbide microfibers (or “whiskers”) for industrial ceramic applications. With the expansion of its operations, ACM now intends to introduce a new class of silicon carbide fibers. 

“Our move into Greenville County was a success,” said Tom Quantrille, Ph.D., president and CEO. “We introduced Silar® silicon carbide microfiber technology, and it is now fully embraced by our target markets. We knew the company must expand our production to address new market opportunities essential to achieving our long-term vision for growth.”

The company will reportedly reconfigure and upfit a portion of its manufacturing space to accommodate the new equipment necessitated by the market expansion.
