Clayco-Venture One Development Services is currently developing a $17 million state-of-the-art U.S. manufacturing facility for WABCO, the leading global supplier of technologies and control systems for the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles.
The new 145,200 square-foot facility, located in North Charleston, South Carolina, will be fully operational by the second quarter of 2016. Included in the overall space is a 60,000 square-foot manufacturing area, a 68,000 square-foot warehouse area and a 16,000 square-foot office area. WABCO will use the new facility to meet increased North American customer demand for air compressors and air disc brakes for commercial trucks.
WABCO chose Clayco-Venture One to build the facility after outgrowing their existing space. The expansion is expected to create more than 50 news jobs while maintaining 175 existing positions.
