Heatworks growing Charleston County operations

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Heatworks, a manufacturer of innovative tankless water heaters, is expanding their Charleston County operations. To accommodate its continued growth, the company is creating approximately 60 new jobs.
 
Heatworks is a technology company that has pioneered a new tankless, electric water heater for a variety of residential and commercial applications. Heatworks is nearing the production phase of its flagship product, the MODEL 3 Water Heater. Rather than using metal coils or traditional heating elements, the MODEL 3 uses Heatworks’ patented Ohmic Array Technology to heat water in the simplest, purest and most efficient way.
 
To accommodate its continued growth, the company is relocating its headquarters to a larger facility to consolidate its offices and laboratory in one location. Located at 2353 Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant, S.C., the company’s new operations are expected to be operational by the end of 2017. Hiring should begin in early 2018, and interested applicants should visit the company’s careers page online for more information.
