A&R Logistics Plans Export Facility in Moncks Corner, South Carolina
The $60 million investment is expected to create over 60 new jobs in Berkeley County. A&R Logistics, Inc.’s new 615,000-square-foot facility will use cutting-edge equipment to offer an array of packaging solutions and complete logistics services for customers shipping product out of the Port of Charleston. The new facility is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2020.
“A&R is thrilled to partner with the great state of South Carolina and the Port of Charleston to expand its operations to the East Coast. We believe combining the Port of Charleston’s efficient operations with A&R’s deep experience in packaging and premier customer service will offer unparalleled service to the chemical and plastics industry,” A&R Logistics President & CEO Mark Holden said.
“South Carolina’s logistics sector continues to impress, and today’s announcement by A&R Logistics, Inc. is a further testament to that. Not only do we have everything we need to make high-quality products in South Carolina, but we also have the resources to move those products all over the globe. Congratulations to A&R Logistics, Inc. for establishing operations here in South Carolina,” Governor Henry McMaster noted.
“S.C. Ports Authority (SCPA) is thrilled to have A&R Logistics invest in a new facility in the Lowcountry to provide warehousing and packaging services for the chemical industry. Proximity to the Port of Charleston gives A&R Logistics access to global markets for exports, as well as the ability to handle growing import volumes bound for Southeast consumers. SCPA excels at meeting companies’ supply chain needs with excellent customer service, reliable operations and efficiently run port terminals. We are excited to welcome A&R Logistics as a customer, and we look forward to the opening of their state-of-the-art facility,” explained S.C. Ports Authority President & CEO Jim Newsome.
“Berkeley County is pleased to welcome A&R Logistics to our corporate family. This company is a good fit for a unique location. Much of A&R Logistics’ product will be moved utilizing existing rail, limiting the number of additional trucks on roadways. The county looks forward to seeing the many opportunities ahead for A&R Logistics, Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb added.
