Published October 12, 2012

IRVINE, CA (BRAIN) — Shimano American planned to break ground Friday on an expansion to its Ladson, South Carolina, distribution center.

The new construction will add nearly 100,000 square feet to the current 102,000 square foot facilty, which was built in 2006. The addition will be complete next August.

“With this investment, it’s much more than just doubling the size at our South Carolina facility -we'll also be prepared for both current and future distribution needs for all our brands,” said Dave Pfeiffer, president of Shimano American Corp.

"This is a needed positive step in order to increase services to our business partners up and down the East Coast, and throughout the Midwest and Southern states. We look forward to our South Carolina facility playing a larger role in Shimano’s operations in the U.S., and we appreciate the cooperation we’ve received from local, regional and state agencies in our expansion plans.”
