The Home Depot, Inc., a world-leading home improvement retailer, announced plans Sept. 23 to expand operations throughout South Carolina. The company is growing several of its supply chain and distribution operations, including the one in Jasper County.
Founded in 1978, the company operates 2,300 The Home Depot retail stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Canada and Mexico.
The Home Depot’s expansion of existing South Carolina operations will increase the company’s distribution capabilities to meet growing demand and bring faster delivery to the region.
In Jasper County, The Home Depot will add a new distribution center, located at 10463 Speedway Boulevard in Hardeeville, creating 14 new jobs. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Jasper County to assist with costs related to this portion of the project.
“We are thrilled that The Home Depot, a nationally and internationally recognized company, is the latest company to invest in operations at the Riverport Commerce Park in Jasper County,” Jasper County Council Chairwoman Barbara Clark said in a release. “The company will be a great addition at this growing industrial park, which is perfect for distribution, just minutes from the Port of Savannah and the future Jasper Ocean Terminal.”
Hiring is ongoing as the company’s supply chain expansion continues. Interested jobseekers should visit careers.homedepot.com for a quick and easy application, or text JOBS to 52270 for a link to apply to local positions.
