Flybar Establishes Greenwood, South Carolina, Distribution Hub

12/09/2022
Flybar, Inc., a premier sporting toy company and original pogo stick manufacturer, will establish a distribution operations center at a former Eaton plant in Greenwood, South Carolina. The $8 million project is expected to create 36 jobs.

Located at 795 West Alexander Road the new facility will support its increasing inventory and fulfillment needs. Operations are scheduled to be online by early January 2023.

“At Flybar, our mission is to create smiles and lifelong memories for our customers, our team, and our communities. We are so excited to bring this mission to Greenwood. We know we will be in good company with other great organizations, a strong labor force and the South Carolina DOC, for whose support we are so grateful. Greenwood’s infrastructure, proximity to the port and mature business market made it the ideal location for our main distribution center. We can’t wait to get Greenwood bouncing and smiling,” Flybar, Inc. President and CEO Saul Wolhendler said.

As an incentive the Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded a $75,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Greenwood County to assist with the costs of building improvements.

“We are excited to announce operations for Flybar, Inc. in Greenwood County which will add to the area’s growing roster of new businesses. By creating these job opportunities and investing in our state, Flybar, Inc. joins our robust logistics community that continues to advance South Carolina’s economy,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

Founded in 1918 as the “original pogo stick company,” Flybar, Inc. has become one of the largest pogo stick manufacturers in the world. The company has recently expanded its active play and bounce portfolio, producing over 500 products in 14 different categories. In addition to pogo sticks, the company manufactures skateboards, ride-on vehicles, trampolines, sleds, preschool toys and more. The products are available at major retailers in store and online.
