Allied Air Enterprises, a subsidiary of Lennox International, recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new, 405,000-square-foot warehouse at the Orangeburg County/City Industrial Park.

“The expansion of our operations is a testament to the positive business environment and the dedication of our employees in Orangeburg, South Carolina,” said Joe Nassab, vice president and general manager of Allied Air Enterprises.

“A key factor in deciding to expand the Allied Air facility has been the outstanding business relationship we have shared with local and state officials since the inception of the plant,” he said.

The company held the groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month for a small group of guests due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The new, $35.7 million facility will be located next to the existing 550,000-square-foot building at 355 Millennium Drive. The expansion will increase the company’s manufacturing, distribution and storage capabilities. It will create 20 new jobs.

The new facility will be one of the largest recently constructed in the county, according to economic development officials. Husqvarna added 500,000 square feet in 2017.
