Davis Aircraft is relocating its manufacturing operations to Andrews and expects to hire 100 people next year.

Davis Aircraft Products, a maker of aviation tubing systems, will relocate its manufacturing operations to its new plant in Andrews. The $5.5 million investment is expected to generate 100 new jobs.
“With our new operations, we will be able to attract new customers and increase our market presence,” said Bruce Davis, CEO of Davis Aircraft Products.
The company will produce its patented Wolfbend product line, used in fuel delivery systems of aircraft. The plant in Andrews is expected to begin operations in spring 2014.
“South Carolina is becoming the ‘it’ state for doing business, and more companies are recognizing the benefits of locating their operations here,” Gov. Nikki Haley said.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a Governor’s Closing Fund grant of $300,000 for building upfit.
Since January 2011, South Carolina has recruited more than $9 billion in capital investment and more than 23,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector.
“Today’s announcement provides another boost to our rapidly growing aerospace and aviation sector,” said state Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt. “Davis Aircraft Products investment brings another aerospace supplier to our state, and brings new manufacturing jobs that will have an impact in Georgetown County and beyond.”
The company will begin hiring for the new positions in spring 2014. Anyone interested in job opportunities should e-mail sales@davisaircraftproducts.com.
