GREENVILLE, S.C. — Electronic capacitor manufacturer Kemet Corp. says it will expand operations in South Carolina, creating 113 new jobs.

The state Department of Commerce said Monday the company's expansion in Greenville County will include a new product line to make parts for electric drive vehicles and alternative energy markets. The jobs will be created within the next three years.

Kemet CEO Per-Olof Loof says the investment will allow the company to meet growing demand from U.S customers, particularly in the electric drive vehicle industry.

The company expects the facility to be completed in the next nine months.
