VTL Precision, a leading developer and manufacturer of precision-engineered engine, transmission, and turbocharger components for the commercial vehicle and passenger car markets, is locating new operations in Berkeley County. The company's $8.2 million investment is projected to create 10 new jobs.
VTL Precision is a venture of VTL Group, a privately-owned automotive and precision engineering company with manufacturing operations in Europe, India, and North America.
