GREENWOOD - Greenwood-based Poynter Sheet Metal has announced plans for a new business unit and significant expansion. The $4.2 million project includes a 54,000-square-foot addition to the existing facility, new equipment and 40 new employees within the next two years.   

Poynter says the new business unit will produce bathroom modules for hospital, hotel and mixed-use residential facilities. 

“This is a big win for Greenwood and speaks to the dedicated efforts our city is undertaking to attract and support companies like Poynter,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers in a news release. “We look forward to sharing a continued path of growth and success.”

Poynter offers fabrication and installation of ventilation and exhaust systems, dust collection and extraction systems, vent and fume hoods, architectural wraps and cladding, tanks and pressure vessels, structural components, handrails, paint and spray booths and custom fabrication. 

Poynter plans to begin construction in early 2020 and anticipates reaching full operational capacity by the end of 2022.
