The Home Depot Expands Supply Chain Operations across South Carolina

Company Will Create 14 New Jobs at Riverport Commerce Park

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Home Depot, Inc. (The Home Depot), a world-leading home improvement retailer, today announced plans to expand operations throughout South Carolina. The company is growing its supply chain and distribution operations in Charleston, Greenville, Jasper and Lexington counties. The combined expansion will create nearly 100 new jobs.

 “South Carolina is a key hub for The Home Depot’s supply chain and our delivery strategy. These new distribution centers create a more seamless experience for pro and DIY customers, with faster and more reliable deliveries to their homes or to the job site,” said The Home Depot Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Stephanie Smith.

 “The Home Depot’s decision to expand throughout the state shows that South Carolina is brimming with potential from the Lowcountry to the Upstate and everywhere in-between. We congratulate them on their expansion and the addition of nearly 100 new jobs. These jobs will have a great impact on our local communities and state as a whole,” said Governor Henry McMaster.

 "For more than 40 years, The Home Depot has operated with a commitment to make the communities they serve stronger and more resilient. We offer our congratulations to the company and look forward to seeing the impact they will continue to make across South Carolina,” added SC Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

 The Home Depot’s expansion of existing South Carolina operations will increase the company’s distribution capabilities to meet growing demand and bring faster delivery to the region.

 In Jasper County, The Home Depot will add a new distribution center, located at 201 Exchange Place in Hardeeville, creating 14 new jobs. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Jasper County to assist with costs related to this portion of the project.

 “We are thrilled that The Home Depot, a nationally and internationally recognized company, is the latest company to invest in operations at the Riverport Commerce Park in Jasper County. The company will be a great addition at this growing industrial park, which is perfect for distribution, just minutes from the Port of Savannah and the future Jasper Ocean Terminal,” said Jasper County Council Chairwoman Barbara Clark.

 “The City of Hardeeville is proud to welcome Home Depot to our community. Home Depot brings to Hardeeville a quality corporate reputation and quality jobs and we look forward to a long and successful relationship between our family and theirs,” said Hardeeville Mayor Harry Williams.

“SouthernCarolina Alliance welcomes The Home Depot to our manufacturing and distribution community. We believe that this announcement is one of many more to come as companies from around the globe see the benefits of Jasper County in terms of workforce, business environment and proximity to I-95 and major seaports. We are proud to have The Home Depot in Jasper County!” remarked SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls.
