Carver Maritime Expands Facility in Right to Work South Carolina


Carver Maritime is soon investing $27.8 million toward its current location in North Charleston, South Carolina. The money will go toward adding a 120,000-square-foot building, as well as creating 50 new jobs. Construction should be done by 2025, and then they can start hiring. So this will help the area’s employment rates and the overall economy.

From Area Development Magazine:

“The Covid-19 pandemic has created many challenges for small businesses like ours, but I want to give credit to both the county and state economic development officials for being responsive to these changes.

“Since expanding our business operations to North Charleston back in 2016, we’ve experienced a friendly pro-business environment that has allowed our business to grow. We could have expanded our operations in New York or our facilities in Florida, but local officials partnered with us which will allow us to create more jobs and help raise the per capita income in the Charleston area.” […]

“It’s remarkable to witness a company expanding in back-to-back years. Our Business Concierge team assisted in 2019, and returned in 2020 to facilitate another expansion for Carver Maritime, LLC. We appreciate Carver Maritime’s commitment to Charleston County, and look forward to a long-term relationship.”
