COLUMBIA, S.C. – Nupi Americas, Inc. today announced that the company will invest $6.2 million in an expansion of its current manufacturing and distribution facility at the Southern Carolina Industrial Campus in Hampton County.
Established in 2001 with facilities in Houston, Texas, Nupi Americas is a subsidiary of Nupi Industrie Italiane, S.p.A., which has been manufacturing and marketing the NIRON product line since 1982. NIRON is a complete polypropylene pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems and is the focus of the Hampton County operations.
Nupi Americas first located warehousing and distribution operations in Hampton County in 2015 to service both its existing and newly-acquired customer base in the eastern United States. Located just off Exit 38 on Interstate 95, the company will be constructing a new, 50,000-square-foot warehousing facility to mirror its existing facility and allow for better integration of its manufacturing operations.
