FLORENCE, SC – Development of the area around the intersection of I-95 and SC 327 continues to intensify.
The Marlboro Development Team, the economic development arm of the jointly managed Marlboro and Pee Dee Electric co-ops, recently expanded the Pee Dee Commerce City Industrial Park west of SC 327 to include an additional 174 acres. The development team is also expected to complete construction of a 117,180 square foot Class A speculative industrial development in the new part of the park by the fourth quarter of the year.
“Marlboro’s development team has a strategic development plan to build a new speculative product in targeted growth markets and Florence County certainly qualifies,” said William Fleming, President and CEO of the Marlboro development team. “We focus on communities and voluntary partners who are fully invested in economic development and believe that this type of investment translates into better paying jobs and opportunities for their citizens. “
“The County of Florence has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with our existing industry, and this has never been truer than our relationship with the Marlboro Development Team and their related entities of MPD Electric Cooperative and Pee Dee Electricom Inc . ”Said Rocky Pearce, president of the Florence County Economic Development Partnership. “We are already helping to market this property and look forward to its delivery this year. “
