Citadel Brands Plans Kingstree, South Carolina, Distribution Hub

Citadel Brands, a clothing and apparel company, will invest more than $7.5 million to establish distribution operations in Kingstree, South Carolina. The project is expected to create 116 jobs in Williamsburg County.

The company’s new operations, located at 955 N. Williamsburg County Highway, will increase distribution capacity and promote future growth for new products and brands. The facility is expected to be operational in June 2022.

“Citadel Brands LLC is extremely excited to be moving our wholesale distribution company to Williamsburg County, located in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Being a native of Kingstree brings me great joy in providing opportunity to longtime residents. The infrastructure in the area provides ease of transportation to our newly constructed warehouse and additional possibilities with the movement of our products across the United States. We are looking forward to working with the county on finding employees who are excited about being a part of a growing company with long-term goals firmly in place,” said Citadel Brands COO Greg Brown.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $200,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Williamsburg County to assist with costs related to the project.

“South Carolina has made a name for itself as a place where companies, big and small, want to do business. When a company like Citadel Brands LLC moves here and creates more than 100 jobs in a rural community, it shows the world that all of South Carolina is open for business. We look forward to watching the success of this great company here in our borders,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
