TBC - Charleston Area & Rockefeller
This week's announcement that TBC Corporation (the nation's largest marketer of tires for the automotive replacement market) had chosen Berkeley County to set up a new 1.1 million square feet distribution center at the I-26/Jedburg Road new 400-acre Industrial Park and Foreign Trade Zone (being developed by the Rockefeller Group and MeadWestVaco) is a real vote of confidence in this area, and a much needed boost for the Port of Charleston to reverse their throughput decline of the last few years.
The center is said to bring at least 100 direct jobs to the area and TBC is set to become the Port's 4th largest customer. Great news!
