The company develops equipment for electrical discharge machining (EDM), laser machining and welding, waterjet machining, abrasive grinding and more, and currently has 1,200 employees throughout ten facilities worldwide.
Chris Urban, the general manager of MTI’s operations, said: "Meyer Tool takes great pride in offering the aerospace and gas turbine engine industries a 'one stop' approach to doing business, and this expanded facility is a key strategic investment in our future growth and success. We appreciate the support and leadership of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Greenville Works, and all who assisted in making this expansion a reality."
