Two Turnkey Manufacturing Plants Available in Clarendon County, SC

CLARENDON COUNTY, SC--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - Attention, heavy manufacturers and metalworking companies, Clarendon County, South Carolina has two outstanding facilities with equipment and machinery for sale. Each has a supply of recently displaced skilled workers standing by; the buildings could be operational within weeks.

Both buildings are in the Clarendon County Industrial Park, situated on I-95 and just over an hour from the Port of Charleston, making the sites ideal for businesses that rely on easy, fast shipping channels to distribute products or receive shipments.

The first building is suited to heavy manufacturing or welding operations. Four heavy cranes cover almost the entire shop floor, and the ground-level building can handle heavy machinery. The building has 25 drive-in doors and has a large paint booth to accommodate an 18-wheeler.

"This facility employed tank welders, who have a higher skill set than most welders," says John Truluck, executive director of the Clarendon County Development Board.

The 53,000-square-foot building was built in 1992. It sits on a 29-acre expandable site.

The second building is suited for metalworking. All machinery and equipment is in place and will be sold with the building. The machinery includes rows of CNC machines that can grind, tap and bore.

"The perfect fit for the building would be a die caster that does a lot of CNC machining," says Truluck. "The employees there already have the necessary skill sets."

The 110,000-square-foot building is 11 years old and in very good shape. It sits on a 24-acre expandable lot.

The main ceilings are 36 feet at center and 32 feet at the eaves. The die casting bay ceilings are 42 feet and 40 feet, respectively.

"Companies locating here could get their facility up and running in one month or less, versus one year," says Truluck. "This is a way for companies to save time and money."

Clarendon County has a large and motivated labor pool. A recent study by a workforce-assessment firm found that the area has more than 100,000 unemployed or under-employed workers.
