by Hayden Spiess

GREENVILLE, S.C. — EnerSys, an industrial technology company, has announced plans to develop a new manufacturing facility in Greenville. 

EnerSys expects to break ground on the $500 million project next year. Upon completion, the facility will total 500,000 square feet on 140 acres within the August Grove Business Park. Operations are slated to begin at the property in late 2027. 

Reading, Pa.-based EnerSys manufactures batteries, chargers and power systems for use in the telecommunications, broadband, data center, industrial utilities, warehouse, logistics, aerospace, defense and transportation industries. The new operations will focus on producing lithium-ion cells, with a projected annual production capacity of four gigawatt hours (GWh). 

This will mark the second facility in the state for the company, which operates in 14 other locations throughout North America. EnerSys says the new facility will create 500 jobs, presumably including both the permanent employees and temporary construction workers.
