Lucideon M+P, a subsidiary of Lucideon Group Limited, is expanding its existing Greenville County presence. The company's $7.5 million investment is expected to create 28 new jobs, with more to follow in the next five years
Lucideon is a leading, independent materials testing, analysis, characterisation, development and commercialisation organisation specialising in materials technologies and processes. The company's application of cross-industry insight, materials science expertise and innovative thinking allows clients to develop and implement advanced technology platforms. Product and process optimization, regulatory support and testing, and failure analysis are additional key services offered to clients.
Currently located in a 7,200-square-foot facility at 481 Garlington Road in Greenville, S.C., Lucideon M+P will be moving into a 23,000-square-foot space at Patewood Business Center, located at 1 Marcus Drive in Greenville, S.C. The move will allow the company to increase its capability to serve businesses in the local area and around the world.
Lucideon provides support to multiple industries including energy, aerospace, and medical device manufacturers. The new Greenville site will become home to Lucideon's Center of Excellence for Additive Manufacturing, supporting aerospace and medical device manufacturing.
In addition to its Greenville facilities, Lucideon also has laboratories and offices in Raleigh, N.C.; Schenectady, N.Y.; Stoke-on-Trent, U.K.; and accredited laboratories in the Far East.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
