THS Constructors, Inc., one of the Southeast’s leading design-build, construction management, and general contracting companies, has been selected by Peabody Engineering and Supply to construct a new 48,000 square-foot facility at the Pickens Commerce Park in Liberty, SC.
Peabody Engineering and Supply is a California-based industrial polyethylene storage tank manufacturer. “After a five-year search for our new East Coast manufacturing location, we have settled on Pickens County in the beautiful state of South Carolina. We chose this location not only for the strong labor force, but also because Pickens County and South Carolina both understand that manufacturing is the backbone of our nation’s economy, and their focus is clearly on helping companies like ours succeed,” said Peabody Engineering’s CEO Mark Peabody. The new facility will support the company’s growing demand for storage tanks, products to conceal telecommunications equipment, and other plastic products.
“We are thrilled about the opportunity to help Peabody Engineering and Supply build their first facility on the East Coast,” said Tom Suitt, Senior Vice President. “This will be our fourth design-build facility in the Pickens Commerce Park, and we are happy to continue to bring jobs and strengthen the economy in Pickens County.”
Project partners for the project include McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, Davis & Floyd Engineering, Arrowood + Arrowood Engineers, Thomas Mechanical, Walker & Whiteside, and W.N. Kirkland. The facility is scheduled to break ground in March, and production start up to begin in the third quarter of 2021.
