A West Columbia-based company has purchased a 61.3 acre site at Sandy Run Industrial Park in Gaston to expand operations.
Blanchard Machinery Company is expanding its existing operation for parts, service, component rebuilds, complete machine rebuilds and additional support services for its other 14 branches across the state, according to a news release
Sandy Run Industrial Park is located on 15th Street in Gaston in Calhoun County.
Blanchard Machinery’s corporate campus is located at 3151 Charleston Highway in West Columbia and will continue to be the home of corporate administration functions, machine sales, used parts and Blanchard Energy, according to the release.
Colliers South Carolina’s industrial brokerage team of Chuck Salley, Dave Mathews, Thomas Beard, and John Peebles represented Blanchard Machinery Company in the transaction.
“Once we determined our need to expand onto a greenfield site, we engaged Chuck Salley and his team to find us the best location possible in the Midlands,” said Boyd Blanchard, president of Blanchard Machinery. “We are extremely pleased with our new site at Sandy Run Industrial Park and the partnership with Colliers that made it possible.”
LCK, Colliers South Carolina’s project management partner, will oversee the construction of the facility. Cox & Dinkins will serve as the civil engineer and Boudreaux Group as the architect.
“Sandy Run Industrial Park, located in Calhoun County just minutes from the intersection of I-26 and I-77, provided an excellent site for Blanchard’s current and future needs,” said Salley, managing director in Colliers’ Columbia office.
