Intertex Transloading Services Establishes Transloading Facility In Berkeley County, South Carolina
This is a major step for Intertex Transloading Services, Inc. as the company seeks to become a larger supplier to the growing tire and rubber industry in South Carolina and the Southeastern United States, South Carolina Department of Commerce officials said.
“We have reviewed dozens of facilities in the Charleston South Carolina region and Savannah, Georgia area, before determining that the Moncks Corner, South Carolina facility offers us the best location to serve our growing customer base in the tire and rubber industry. The facility is over 100,000 square feet, and offers us the capability to expand. This is an exciting opportunity for Intertex and we look forward to growing with the resurgent tire industry in South Carolina, and the United States,” Intertex World Resources, Inc. Director of Carbon Black Services Gary Horning added.
“This exciting new opportunity will allow Intertex World Resources to expand our reach in this resurging industry – providing us with the ability to continue to serve our long-standing clients, while expanding our reach and designing new services from the ground up. As leaders in the industry, we are driven to stay ahead of the curve by identifying not only the current needs of customers, but forecasting future needs and opportunities based on industry growth,” Intertex World Resources President Stan Rybalov said.
“The opening of our facility in Berkeley County, South Carolina, is the first step in that process. We will be able to transload carbon black into bulk package on site. The facility is in close proximity to the port and new tire plants, helping to expedite handling imported material and providing maximum efficiency for our customers, “ added Rybalov.
Founded in 1990 and based in Akron, Ohio, Intertex World Resources, Inc. is one of the largest and most diversified distributors of elastomers, master batches, natural and synthetic rubber, process oils and carbon black, a material used as reinforcing filler in tires and other molded rubber and plastic products. These materials have tremendous relevance in South Carolina as the Palmetto State is currently the number one producer and exporter of tires in the United States.
“S.C. Ports Authority welcomes Intertex Transloading Services to the Lowcountry, and we look forward to handling their import needs. The growth of businesses that support South Carolina’s tire industry generates new volumes for the SCPA and has a significant economic impact on our state and region,” S.C. Ports Authority President/CEO Jim Newsome noted.
“South Carolina is the nation’s tire capital, and it’s great to see that trend continue with Intertex Transloading Services choosing to establish their next plant in Moncks Corner. Their investment of $3.2 million and creation of 10 new jobs is good news for this local community and we look forward to seeing them grow and succeed in our state,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
“The tire industry continues to leave a strong footprint on our state. As the number one producer and exporter of tires in the U.S., South Carolina will continue to recruit quality companies that support the tire manufacturing supply chain, including respected companies like Intertex Transloading Services,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.
“Intertex’s decision to locate here in Moncks Corner says a lot about its confidence in our region’s workforce, our business-friendly climate and the global connectivity of the Port of Charleston. We are so pleased they chose to partner with our community and look forward to their continued growth and success.” said Charleston Regional Development Alliance Board Chairman Lonnie Carter.
