Eight Months Later, Greenville Company Ready to Expand Further

Aug 8, 2012

GREENVILLE - For the second time in less than a year, Weatherford Artificial Lift Systems launches a major expansion at its plant.

In January, crews broke ground on a $26 million, 105,000 square foot expansion, adjacent to its current facility off Highway 380. That project is now complete.

On Tuesday, the company announced plans for a third expansion phase, construction of a 126,000 square foot building along Lee Street. While completion of January’s project will bring roughly 110 new jobs, doubling their current workforce, it’s unclear how many new jobs this latest expansion will bring.

Weatherford is a major supplier of oil and gas drilling equipment and production services.
