Ingram Micro Plans Roebuck, South Carolina, Fulfillment Center
The expansion includes a regional fulfillment center to serve customers in the Southeast. The location expects to ship approximately 2 million packages annually. Operations are planned for early 2023.
“Ingram Micro is pleased to continue to invest in the state of South Carolina with a new advanced fulfillment center to further serve our customers in the region and play an important role in helping keep the global supply chain moving. South Carolina is known for providing access to a dedicated workforce, and we are excited to grow our presence here in the state. We are thrilled to partner with VanTrust Real Estate in this latest development in Spartanburg County,” said Ingram Micro Executive Director of Global Real Estate Marianne Zeller.
As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council has also awarded a $300,000 Set-Aside grant to Spartanburg County to assist with the cost of building improvements.
“Ingram Micro’s expanded Spartanburg County operation is not only a win for the local community, it’s a win for all of our state. This company is an integral part of South Carolina’s supply chain network, and we celebrate their success within our borders,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
Ingram Micro is an American distributor of information technology products and services. The company is based in Irvine, California, U.S. and has operations around the world.
“Ingram Micro’s decision to grow in Spartanburg strengthens our county’s already-robust logistics sector and brings another global brand with global connections to our county. We celebrate Ingram Micro’s footprint in Spartanburg County and look forward to working with them as they find continued success here,” Spartanburg County Councilman and Chairman of the Economic Development Committee David Britt added.
