An exercise equipment company which purchased a Lexington facility in March is expanding operations.
Sorinex Exercise Equipment Inc. is investing $7 million in an expansion of its 120 Glassmaster Road facility expected to create 35 jobs. The expansion, expected to be completed within 12 months, will help the family-owned strength training equipment company meet increased demand, according to a news release from Central SC Alliance.
Sorinex has created custom exercise equipment and workout apparel for 40 years for customers ranging from high school, college and professional teams to military bases.
“Lexington County has been home to Sorinex Exercise Equipment Inc. and many of our employees for years,” Kenny Workman, Sorinex controller, said in the release. “We look forward to continuing our expansion, growth and investments in the county that we work and live in. We're proud to have the opportunity to build the most innovative weight equipment in the world right here in Lexington, S.C.”
In March, the company bought a 97,000-square-foot industrial facility at 120 Glassmaster Road for $2.7 million as it relocated operations from West Palm Beach, Fla. That 8.32-acre facility is located on the same exit off Interstate 20 as the company’s headquarters and main manufacturing hub on Litton Drive.
Sorinex also has two smaller leased warehouses in the greater Columbia area.

“We are thrilled to see Sorinex Exercise Equipment Inc. expand its business and continue to invest in Lexington County,” Lexington County Council Chair Scott Whetstone said. “This investment will bring more job opportunities to our residents and allow the county to keep growing and moving in a positive direction.”
