Lineage Logistics, an innovative provider of temperature-controlled logistics solutions, plans to invest $34 million to expand operations in North Charleston, South Carolina.
Located at 7748 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston, Lineage Logistics’ expansion will enable the company to increase capacity to satisfy growing customer needs. The expansion is expected to be completed by February 2021.
“Charleston has it all, first-rate infrastructure, great access, a top ranked port and a skilled workforce. South Carolina’s numerous business advantages, in addition to the booming market, have helped Lineage to better service our export and import customers, as well as our domestic shipping partners. We are thrilled to expand our existing operations in what we believe is the right location at the right time,” said President and CEO of Lineage Logistics Greg Lehmkuhl.
“South Carolina continues to provide the ideal location and infrastructure companies need to get products to customers. And, today’s announcement by Lineage Logistics serves as yet another indication of that fact. This is a huge win for Charleston County, and we look forward to our continued partnership with this great company,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
“Our world-class Port of Charleston, along with our excellent intermodal logistics, provided them the opportunity to grow in our community,” Charleston County Council Chairman Elliott Summey noted.
Founded in 2008, Lineage Logistics is one of the world's largest refrigerated warehousing companies with more than 300 facilities in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
“Helping our existing industry is the core of our Business Concierge program. Our relationship with Lineage Logistics started in 2014 when they announced their plans to open a facility in North Charleston. Now, four years after their facility opened, we are proud to witness an expansion and 36 new jobs for our community,” said Charleston County Economic Development Executive Director Steve Dykes.
