Republic National Distributing Company Expands Its Lexington County, South Carolina, Production Facility

Republic National Distributing Company, a distributor of premium wine and spirits in the United States, is expanding its South Carolina operations – Republic National Distributing Company of South Carolina – with the construction of an addition to its existing Lexington County facility. The company is investing more than $10 million and increasing its overall presence in South Carolina.

RNDC’s Lexington County expansion will be achieved with the construction of a 129,500-square-foot addition to its existing 206,000-square-foot facility in the Lexington County Industrial Park. The company will employ more than 500 staff at the facility when the project is completed this summer. Positioned less than a mile from the intersection of Interstate 26 and Interstate 77, the expanded facility will allow RNDC to more efficiently serve its customers throughout South Carolina. The expansion is expected to be completed later this year, before the end of the third quarter.

“We consider ourselves lucky to call South Carolina and Lexington County home and appreciate all the support as we continue to grow our business,” said Director of Operations for RNDC South Carolina Steve Platte.

“It’s a real reason to celebrate when a company doing business in South Carolina announces an expansion and creates new job opportunities for the people of this state. RNDC’s investment of more than $10 million is a big win for our state, and we look forward to supporting them as they continue to grow and thrive here for many years to come,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

“South Carolina is a leader in logistics and distribution, and today’s announcement by the Republic National Distributing Company is a testament to that. I offer my congratulations to RNDC for announcing this expansion and look forward to watching their continued success in our state,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt noted.
