EDGEFIELD, S.C. (WRDW) -- TranTech Radiator Products re-opened its Edgefield manufacturing facility on Monday.

The plant re-opened after employees and vendor partners were able to replace or repair all damaged equipment in the Edgefield facility and tests were completed to ensure employee safety, the company said in a news release.

"I want to personally thank those dedicated employees and valued vendor partners who worked so hard to not only get our plant running again so quickly, but their thoughtfulness of making sure that safety was at the heart of how we conducted the repairs," TranTech President Greg Horton said in a release. "The outpouring of support from Edgefield and the surrounding communities has been overwhelming."

On June 9, three employees from Trantech were hurt by a transformer, Trantech said. Two employees are still at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctor's Hospital in Augusta. The other was released from the hospital the same day.

TranTech Radiator Products manufactures radiators and valves at its 126,000-square-foot facility.

"We never want to see another member of the TranTech family injured," Horton said.
