Limehouse Produce Company Plans $8.3 Million Expansion At Charleston, South Carolina, Production Campus

01/15/2016
Limehouse Produce Company, a local company which has been providing farmed produce and unique products to restaurants, schools and hospitals for more than seven decades, is expanding its Lowcountry operations. The company is investing $8.3 million in the project, which is expected to create 40 new jobs over the next five years in Charleston, South Carolina.

In an effort to meet increased customer demand in one of the nation's fastest-growing metro regions, Limehouse Produce has purchased a 14.9-acre tract at 2650 Carner Avenue and will renovate the property's existing 128,000-square-foot structure.

Additionally, Limehouse Produce will construct a new 43,000-square-foot facility on the property to house future warehouse operations, as well as the company's headquarters. Limehouse Produce has hired local companies to construct the project, which is expected to be completed in early 2017.

"Limehouse Produce is proud to have accompanied Charleston, and particularly the local restaurants, in the extraordinary success of our beautiful city. We are very excited about the development of this property and believe it will not only position us to serve our customer base better, but will also be an asset to our new neighborhood,” Limehouse Produce Vice President Andrea Limehouse.

"Limehouse Produce is another fantastic example of a company that continues to show its commitment to South Carolina and our people, and has grown and thrived here because of it. This $8.3 million investment and the 40 new jobs it will create is a reason to celebrate, not only for the company, but for the entire state,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

"Limehouse Produce is not only a leader in the agribusiness and food distribution industries but also a respected name in South Carolina's overall business community. Today, I'm thrilled to congratulate this Lowcountry company on their continued success in the Palmetto State,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
