Marlboro Development Team, Inc. developing spec facility in Florence County
117,000-square foot building will be located in Pee Dee Commerce City West Industrial Park
Marlboro Development Team, Inc., the economic development arm of the jointly managed Marlboro and Pee Dee Electric Cooperatives, recently announced it has commenced design and construction on a 117,180 square-foot Class A industrial speculative development in the Pee Dee Commerce City West Industrial Park in Florence County.
The new facility is located at the intersection of Interstate 95 and S.C. Highway 327 at exit 170. Located on a 12.5-acre tract, the facility is designed to accommodate modern manufacturing and logistics requirements and includes tilt-wall construction, 22 dock doors, 200’ truck court depths, 32’6” clear height, 50’ x 54’ column spacing with a 60’ x 54’ speed bay, and expansion capability to at least 235,000 square feet.
“Florence County is experiencing a wave of new investment to our community, the likes of which we’ve never seen, and it is only made possible by our willingness to support the confluence of public and private partnerships such as this one with Marlboro Development Team,” said Willard Dorriety, Jr., chairman of Florence County Council.
“Florence County has always maintained a great relationship with our existing industry, and this has never been truer than our relationship with Marlboro Development Team and their related entities of MPD Electric Cooperative and Pee Dee Electricom, Inc.,” said Joe “Rocky” Pearce, chairman of Florence County Economic Development Partnership. “We are already assisting in the marketing of this property and look forward to its delivery this year.”
The highly successful Pee Dee Commerce City, served and owned by Pee Dee Electric Cooperative, was recently expanded to add 174 acres to the west of Highway 327 which provides additional development potential of at least 1.1 million square feet of Class A industrial space as well as retail, commercial, and hospitality outparcels.
Recently located or expanded businesses at this interchange include Buc-ee’s, Niagara Bottling, GE Medical, Performance Food Group, FedEx, Pepsi-Cola, Ruiz Foods, and Innovative Construction Group.
“This building is just one of several planned for this intersection and surrounding parcels,”said William Fleming, president and CEO of Marlboro Development Team.
