MobileFleet Locates Operations in Marion, South Carolina
The new Marion County location will include the company's manufacturing division that builds custom storage solutions for public service providers, including fire and police departments and government municipalities.
As an incentive the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. Additionally, a $250,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund (RIF) grant was awarded to Marion County to assist with infrastructure improvements and building construction associated with the project.
"MobileFleet Inc., its distribution division (Wholesale Public Safety) and its manufacturing division (Rockland Custom Products) are extremely excited about our new South Carolina facility in Marion. Locating this facility in South Carolina will make us much more competitive domestically and internationally and we hope will show other companies looking to expand/relocate what great places South Carolina and Marion County are for business,” MobileFleet Inc. President & CEO Robert E. Squicciarini Sr. said.
"South Carolina's manufacturing industry is one of the fastest growing in the world, and we have a strong workforce and competitive business environment to thank for that. We welcome this new investment by MobileFleet Inc. and look forward to seeing the impact these new jobs will have on Marion County,” Governor Henry McMaster said.
"South Carolina continues to build on its success in the manufacturing sector, and MobileFleet Inc.'s establishment of its operations in Marion County will provide another boost. Today's announcement further proves our pro-business efforts are paying off,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.
"It's always great to see quality companies, such as MobileFleet Inc., choose to invest in the NESA region. We were honored to collaborate with them and Marion County to make this project a reality, and we look forward to seeing them prosper. Congratulations to MobileFleet Inc. and Marion County on this exciting announcement,” North Eastern Strategic Alliance Executive Committee Chairman Yancey McGill added.
