New York-based ITT Corp. has announced it is expanding its manufacturing operations in Westminster, S.C., by investing approximately $1 million to build a new test facility for natural gas vehicle (NGV) components that are part of the company's Conoflow brand of products. These NGV components consist of compressed natural gas pressure regulators and liquid natural gas regulators for heavy-duty vehicles.
The $1 million investment is part of a total of $2.5 million that the company expects to invest in the facility over the next five years.
“This expansion will allow us to deliver our latest advancements in natural gas valve technologies into this exciting and expanding global market, giving us the ability to better meet the needs of our customers with the highest-quality products and services they have come to know from ITT,” says Jeff Weisbeck, commercial director for ITT's control technologies business. “We look forward to continuing to grow our business and product capacity at the Westminster facility.”
