Greenville County has announced capital investment of more than $1.1 billion in investment
At the recent GADC Annual Meeting, Health Supply US -- a leading government contracting and medical supply company -- announced it will establish manufacturing operations in Greenville County, investing more than $150 million and creating 600 new jobs.
Operating as Glove One, the operation will initially produce such PPE as nitrile gloves. A dedicated health care industry and government partner, Health Supply US works to secure the United States’ domestic pipeline of medical supplies by producing PPE for health care systems and government. The company’s FDA-compliant products include Class I medical devices and products such as isolation gowns and nitrile gloves. The state-of-the-art facility, encompassing nearly 400,000 square feet, will produce more than 4.3 billion nitrile gloves per year and will be located near to Beechtree Business Park. The GADC also celebrated 2021’s strong job creation and capital investment as CEO Mark Farris reported capital investment of $1.1 billion and 4,644 new jobs since the start of the pandemic in 2020. For 2021 alone, Greenville County realized $142 million in investment and 1,836 new high-paying jobs, with mean wages well above County and state averages. The strong numbers were validated by a 2021 economic impact study by University of South Carolina which estimated GADC’s total economic impact in the county exceeds $6 billion annually and sustains 64,784 jobs in the County alone. Over 20 years, GADC's cumulative economic impact is over $55 billion.
