DHL Supply Chain has announced its plans to establish new operations in Cherokee County, bringing nearly 250 jobs to the state.
DHL, a contract logistics leader, an affiliate of the Deutsche Post DHL Group is investing more than $92.7 million in the county.
The construction of a 1.3 million square foot warehouse at 600 Webber Road in Cowpens will be part of DHL’s new operations. It is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2022.
“We work hard to bring new companies to South Carolina, but it’s always particularly exciting to see one of our existing businesses grow into other areas of the state. We celebrate DHL’s decision to invest $92.7 million and create 249 new jobs in Cherokee County,” said Gov. Henry McMaster.
“DHL Supply Chain is excited to once again partner with the state of South Carolina to grow our logistics presence in a very desirable market.” Carl DeLuca, DHL Supply Chain Head of Real Estate Solutions, Americas, added, “We are a firm believer that our investment in the Palmetto State will further solidify our market leadership position in the supply chain and logistics industry.”
Cherokee County was also awarded a $250,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to aid with the project’s costs.
