IronLink Logistics, a logistics service company, is growing its East Coast presence by establishing operations in Charleston County.
The $16.45 million investment will create 250 new jobs, according to a news release from the Charleston County Economic Development Department.
The company has three West Coast facilities in California — two in Ontario and one in Chino, according to the release. The new 340,000-square-foot building located at 6880 Weber Blvd. in Ladson gives IronLink a Southeast presence. The other East Coast operations are in Florence and Burlington, New Jersey.
“We are thrilled to announce that IronLink Logistics has chosen Charleston, South Carolina, as the hub for our operations, utilizing the strategic advantages of the port to enhance our logistics capabilities,” IronLink Owner and CEO David Dembitzer said in the release. “The vibrant community and dynamic economic environment of Charleston align seamlessly with our values and growth aspirations. As we integrate into this beautiful city, we look forward to forging strong partnerships, contributing to the local economy and becoming an integral part of the Charleston community.
“Together, we are poised to embark on an exciting journey of mutual growth and success.”
IronLink, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) provider, offers a comprehensive range of transportation, warehousing, and distribution services to a diverse customer base of industries and product sectors, the release stated. The company handles various aspects of the supply chain, including inventory management, order fulfillment, and freight transportation from port and outbound freight worldwide.
“Ironlink Logistics’ presence will boost economic growth and enhance the efficiency of our logistics network,” Charleston County Council Chairman Herbert Ravenel Sass III said in the release. “With 250 new jobs on the horizon, IronLink's investment is set to have a transformative impact on the supply chain in Charleston County, solidifying our reputation as a hub for innovation and advancement.”
Operations will be online by the end of this year.
