Press release date: October 18, 2012

Siemens Industry, Inc. today announced its plans to open an assembly and manufacturing plant as part of the company's Drives Technologies Division, Mechanical Drives Business Unit. The 45,600 square-foot facility will be located in the city of Mauldin in Greenville County. Siemens anticipates opening the facility later this year.

"The new South Carolina geared motor facility will place the company and its products manufactured in South Carolina closer to machine builders and manufacturers in the Southeastern United States," according to Doug Keith, President of Siemens Drive Technologies Division in the U.S.. "The announcement of this plant adds to Siemens ability to be a single-source provider of integrated drive train solutions for industry. Our portfolio of gears, motors, drives and automation is helping to lead a global transformation of the industrial and manufacturing sector, by increasing productivity and energy efficiency to the highest possible levels."

The facility will assemble Siemens new Simogear family of geared motors, featuring helical, parallel shaft, and helical bevel gear units primarily used in modern conveyor systems often found in warehousing, logistics and distribution, airport baggage handling, automotive manufacturing and food and beverage processing. Keith added that the site combined all of the necessary elements Siemens was seeking in a location, including proximity to transportation infrastructure, including interstates and ports, a highly skilled workforce with reputable educational institutions nearby, a green-minded community and a dedicated group of business partners.

"It's a great day in South Carolina when a world-class company like Siemens chooses to locate new operations in our state. We celebrate the company's decision to invest in South Carolina and create new jobs. Announcements like this show we are doing the right things to attract businesses from around the globe to our state," said Gov. Nikki Haley.

Throughout the site selection process, Siemens officials worked closely with several entities that were instrumental in the decision to locate in Mauldin, including the State of South Carolina, Greenville County, the City of Mauldin and Laurens Electric Cooperative.

"It's exciting to see a company like Siemens bring a new manufacturing operation to the Palmetto State. Every one of these jobs will have impact locally. Announcements like this are made possible by a strong team effort from state and local officials," said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

Local Siemens officials are currently working with readySC and Greenville Technical College on workforce development and training needs. Siemens plans to begin hiring in October and individuals interested in learning more may visit the Siemens career web site at www.usa.siemens.com/careers.
