A third-party logistics company is expanding its network of warehouses to Calhoun County.

Kansas-based Smart Warehousing on Thursday announced it will open a warehouse and distribution center at the 761-acre Sandy Run Industrial Park.

The company will begin operations May 1, according to its website.

It will locate in the 497,952-square-foot spec building to serve Smart Warehousing customers in the Southeast. The company will lease the entire building from Red Rock Developments, the developer of the building.

The amount being invested and the jobs being created were not immediately available Thursday.

“In order to best serve our customers, we always look for their feedback,” CEO and founder Carl Wasinger said. “In this case, South Carolina was a recurring wish-list item for our customers.”

Calhoun County Administrator and Director of Economic Development John McLauchlin said the arrival of Smart Warehousing is a testament to Calhoun County’s friendly industrial and business climate.

“It just proves the industrial market in Calhoun County, specifically in the upper part of the county,” McLauchlin said. “We’ve got a lot of things that attract, not just land, but our taxes are low, our utilities are low.”
