Metromont will cap a nearly $9 million investment in architectural and structural product capacity with the transfer of fabrication from a Charlotte, N.C., plant to expanded Greenville County, S.C., operations. “While we’ve seen much success with our Charlotte plant over the years, we feel that consolidating our North and South Carolina operations will allow us to improve our production efficiency and quality control and ultimately, better serve our customers,” says Metromont Carolinas Vice President & General Manager Chuck Gantt.
