Patten Seed Company Relocates-Plans Charleston, South Carolina, Corporate Headquarters

Patten Seed Company, one of the largest turfgrass producers in the Southeast, will relocate its corporate headquarters to Charleston, South Carolina. The $2.2 million project is expected to create 40 jobs.

The new headquarters will be located at 22 Westedge Street and will centralize the company’s senior management team and feature a marketing and technology hub.

“Charleston County is central to our current footprint throughout the southeastern United States. As we continue to grow, it was important to centralize the senior management team and take advantage of a more robust hiring market and Charleston County fits that need well. Vibrant companies need vibrant cities,” Patten Seed Company CEO Ben Copeland Jr. said.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $200,000 Set-Aside grant to Charleston County to assist with the costs of building improvements.

“It’s great when an agribusiness such as Patten Seed Company decides to plant more roots in South Carolina. We welcome Patten Seed Company to Charleston County’s vibrant business environment and look forward to the company's success,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

Patten Seed Company grows, cleans, and bags TifBlair Centipede and Zenith and Compadre Zoysia grass seed. The company does business as Super-Sod through its eight sod farms and thirteen landscape supply stores in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

“Patten Seed Company's new headquarters operation is a fantastic addition to South Carolina’s thriving agribusiness community. With its rich history and regional reach, Patten Seed Company will contribute jobs, support existing farmers and strengthen our economy,” added South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers.
