The distribution center will be utilized to serve TTI Floor Care North America's customers throughout the East and Midwest regions of the United States. The new facility is expected to be operational in March 2021 and completed in the latter half of the year.
"TTI Floor Care North America looks forward to a long and successful relationship with the state of South Carolina. When we were presented with the opportunity to expand our business in Spartanburg County, we decided it was the perfect location. We are very appreciative of the support we have already received from the state of South Carolina, Spartanburg County and the South Carolina Ports Authority, and we are eager to begin contributing to the local economy and job market,” said TTI Floor Care North America VP and General Manager Jessica Rapp.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
"SC Ports looks forward to serving TTI Floor Care North America's new distribution center in Spartanburg County, which will service clients throughout the East and Midwest. TTI Floor Care will benefit from SC Ports' access to global markets through the Port of Charleston and our overnight rail service to Inland Port Greer, which can reach up to 90 million consumers within a one-day truck trip,” noted SC Ports President and CEO Jim Newsome.
