AVX Corporation
Myrtle Beach, Horry County, South Carolina

As early as 1953, the former Aerovox Corporation began operations at 801 17th Avenue South, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Currently that site houses its subsidiary corporation, AVX Corporation. Since 1972, AVX has manufactured a variety of ceramic capacitors and electronic components at its Myrtle Beach facility. The components manufactured at this facility are used in the automotive, medical and consumer electronics industries. This facility also conducts research and development of new products, materials and processes.

This DHEC webpage will serve as a central location to inform the public of potential environmental issues on and around the AVX Myrtle Beach site. This webpage will continue to grow as more information for this facility becomes available.
