TBC Corp. is taking on a 1.1 million-square-foot distribution near Charleston, S.C.
Construction of the new DC, located in the Rockefeller Group Foreign Trade Zone/Charleston in Berkeley County, S.C., is expected to start by the end of this year, and the new center is slated to open in 2010.
“We are excited about the opportunity to consolidate a portion of our distribution network to a new and larger facility in the Charleston area,” said Erik Olsen, president and CEO of TBC Wholesale Group. “The infrastructure and location of the Port of Charleston complements our growth and will allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers.”
TBC expects to bring “thousands of containers” through the Port of Charleston, according to reports. The new DC will reportedly add 100 jobs to the region.
