NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - A South Carolina vehicle manufacturer opened a brand new facility in North Charleston on Thursday.

Streit USA Armoring is one of America's leading manufacturers of armored vehicles for government and private sector security forces.

The new 75,000 square foot facility will allow Streit to nearly triple its production output. 

Officials say monthly production will now go from 20 cars to 70.

"We're definitely growing as a company as a whole. We're growing by leaps and bounds.  But I'm proud of this facility. We service a lot of men and women in the military as well as the private sector," said General Manager Thomas Wickel.

Streit Armour currently has 30 employees at this facility and hopes to have up to 50 by the end of the year.
