FOUNTAIN INN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Fountain Inn company announced Thursday it will expand its operations, creating 279 jobs during the next several years.

AVX relocated its corporate headquarters to the southern Greenville County town in 2009. The company said it will invest more than $14 million in its facility, which supplies electronic components and interconnect solutions to manufacturing and customer support facilities in 15 countries.

"Increasing manufacturing and research operations at our global headquarters facility in Fountain Inn, near Greenville, is an important step for our company's growth," said AVX CFO Kurt Cummings. "These new operations will allow us to expand our worldwide activity and broaden our product offering."

In addition to 279 new jobs, 150 jobs will be relocated to Fountain Inn from the company's Myrtle Beach operation.

"Investments like this one show that our state provides an environment where companies can grow and prosper," said Gov. Nikki Haley.

It was not immediately clear what types of jobs will be created or when hiring will begin.
