AS/R Systems Inc. To Relocate Operations To Ridgeland, South Carolina
Founded in 1991, AS/R Systems Inc. leads the technology transfer market for specialized Goods to Person technology, critical to manufacturing and distribution enterprises. Their customized vertical and horizontal carousels, along with technical services, provide significant space and labor improvements to a wide base of manufacturing and distribution firms across the U.S. and Canada, particularly in the health care, retail, manufacturing and e-commerce sectors.
“We chose Jasper County for the relocation of our Illinois operation because the location offers excellent access to markets via I-95 and the Ports of Savannah and Charleston. In addition, Governor Haley, Jasper County Council and the economic development team have provided a business-friendly community in which our company can grow,” said AS/R Systems Owner Doug Robertson.
“AS/R Systems’ decision to invest in our state and establish operations in Jasper County proves that South Carolina is open for business to companies in all industries. This $2.5 million investment and the 11 new jobs it will create is a terrific beginning to a partnership between our state and this great company,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
