STAR EV announces $8.7 million investment creating 50 jobs in Greenville
STAR EV, a specialized electric vehicle manufacturer, has announced plans to expand operations in Greenville County with a more than $8.7 million investment that will create 50 jobs.
Founded in 2003, STAR EV manufactures golf carts, off-road carts and other recreational vehicles and distributes from more than 200 locations worldwide. The company also offers a line of accessories such as flip sets, tires, brush guards and stereos.
“We are ecstatic to be expanding our manufacturing operations to better serve our customers. This expansion will raise our STAR EV brand recognition to a new level in the global market,” said STAR EV CEO Jane Zhang. “We’d like to thank Greenville County and the state for their outstanding support, and we look forward to this continued partnership for years to come.”
Located at 378 Neely Ferry Road in Simpsonville, STAR EV’s expansion will increase the company’s capacity to meet growing demand. The company prides itself on delivering power, performance, and safety to their vehicles, which are street legal and ready for low-speed travel in most states. STAR EV vehicles keep their drivers on the road longer with 48-volt cars that can go up to 60 miles on a full charge, and they use top-line drive trains, batteries, controllers, and advanced AC/DC motors.
