MRCOOL Establishes McCormick, South Carolina, Operations

MRCOOL, a provider of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems and equipment, plans to establish operations in McCormick, South Carolina. The $3.1 million project is expected to create 17 jobs.

The company will upfit an existing building located at 1559 S. Main Street, which will serve as a MRCOOL franchise location where the company will sell and distribute MRCOOL products and related services.

“MRCOOL is thrilled to announce the establishment of a franchise operation in McCormick, aimed at providing South Carolina residents with affordable, innovative and energy-efficient HVAC systems. We’re eager to deliver cutting-edge products to our industry HVAC partners and valued customers, ensuring comfort and heating and cooling sustainability through the state,” MRCOOL Franchise Division President Nathan Rowton said.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded a $340,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to McCormick County to assist with the costs of building improvements.

“South Carolina’s rural communities are a critical part of our state’s economy, and we are pleased MRCOOL selected McCormick County for its first South Carolina operation. This investment and the 17 jobs it creates will provide new opportunities and, ultimately, benefit the region,” noted Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

The MRCOOL is known for its innovative and energy-efficient HVAC product lines including the DIY Ductless Mini-Splits, GeoCool Inverter Series, Universal Series and Central Ducted Hyper Heat Series heat pumps.

“South Carolina Ports looks forward to supporting MRCOOL’s new operation in McCormick County by providing direct access to global markets. SC Ports delivers reliable, highly productive port service to support growing companies in our state,” added SC Ports President and CEO Barbara Melvin.
