Unique Loom Expanding Operations in Lancaster County
May 15, 2017
Lancaster, SC – The Lancaster County Department of Economic Development (LCDED) has announced that Unique Loom, an online and business to business distributor that specializes in area rugs and home décor, will be expanding its operations to Indian Land, South Carolina. The Fort Mill based company has leased 260,000 square feet of industrial space at 793 Fort Mill Highway.
The new facility will allow the company to significantly expand its operations. The facility is expected to employ 335 associates over the next four years with 245 of those positions being new hires. Johnny Nassri, Unique Loom’s Vice President said, “The Indian Land facility was a great opportunity for us. It is a fantastic building able to accommodate our growth plans in several key areas. The location keeps us close to our other warehouses in nearby Fort Mill and offers excellent access to Interstate 77. We’ve been impressed with the support the Lancaster County and South Carolina economic development teams have provided Unique Loom since the early stages of our project. It was important for Unique Loom that we expand in a community that supports business growth and Lancaster County offers that.” Unique Loom is currently hiring for warehouse positions at facility. Interested job seekers should email the company at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Employment in the subject line.
Lancaster County Department of Economic Development (LCDED) Director Jamie Gilbert said, “We are very excited about Unique Loom investing in our county. The job projections are quite strong and the company is bringing new life to a building that has been vacant for several years. We are looking forward to watching Unique Loom grow here and becoming one of our largest industrial operations.” LCDED is working with Unique Loom on several local and state incentives that will assist the company with the expansion and building upgrades.
Unique Loom’s expansion is the third project announced in Lancaster County this year. Earlier in the year Movement Mortgage announced the expansion of their Indian Land Headquarters and Springs Global is moving distribution operations to a facility they own in Lancaster. The three projects represent an estimated 1,060 new jobs and over $23 million in investment.
“Unique Loom’s selection of Lancaster County for their expansion is another indication of the strength of our county and state as a premier location for business. The company has an excellent product that is sold by some of the nation’s leading retailers. They will be a terrific addition to our growing and diverse business community”, said Steve Harper, Lancaster County Council Chairman.
