October 29, 2013

On Saturday YH America South Carolina, LLC held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of an expansion to their facility located in Pickens County.

The manufacturer of fluid handling components for the light automotive industry in North America needed the additional space to both increase capacity and improve the efficiency at the facility.
