Investment Award from Newberry County
07. Mai 2019
Newberry County industries were the topic of the annual Toast of the Town event on May, 7th 2019. During the Toast of Town, Meinolf Muhr, owner/president of MM Technics received the Investment Award from Newberry County.
County Administrator Wayne Adams hold the laudatory speech: “Meinolf Muhr and his Uncle Michael first visited Newberry County in October of 2015. They were drawn by the County’s spec building at the Mid-Carolina Commerce Park, though they eventually decided on a greenfield project. Meinolf’s metal stamping company would become Newberry County’s first BMW supplier, offering a Phase One workforce of 65 workers,“ Adams said. “A new 15-acre site was cleared and the building constructed within 11 months, meeting BMW’s tight timetable to launch-up the factory.”
“In production for a year and a half now, the company has already exceeded its original estimate of a $13 million investment and will soon be adding a third press to increase capacity. As the MM Technics team has matched perfectly the requirements of BMW, the company is now looking to expand into high-tech welding and assembly work for its automotive clients,“ Adams added.
