HYDERA Container Depot Plans Charleston, South Carolina, Operations
The new facility, located at 1690 Bushy Park Road at the Charleston International Manufacturing Center, is expected to be fully operational by April 2022, with storage and transportation services being offered as soon as October 2021.
“Berkeley County has proven to be a great place to invest, attract talent and grow our site. Along with our partner OURAY, we are excited to be starting up this new company, HYDERA, to serve the growing needs of the bulk liquids market in the Charleston region,” HYDERA CEO and CIMC President Kent Fonvielle said.
HYDERA is a full-service International Organization for Standardization container depot that specializes in servicing the needs of the bulk liquids transportation industry. HYDERA will provide cleaning, storage, heating, repair, testing and maintenance of the ISO containers.
“HYDERA bringing new jobs to Berkeley County is a big win for Team South Carolina and reiterates the diverse business community our state has cultivated. We thank HYDERA for their commitment and look forward to watching them grow and succeed here,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
“SC Ports congratulates HYDERA on this investment. This new facility enhances services for specialty cargo, which is important to many major port customers and employers in the region. It is encouraging to see the logistics service industry expand alongside SC Ports’ continued growth,” SC Ports President and CEO Jim Newsome added.
