A Charleston-based manufacturer has begun work on a $30 million expansion project.
Mankiewicz Coatings has partnered with Choate Construction Co. on a 100,000-square-foot expansion to double its operations in Charleston — the third significant investment from the company in less than 15 years, according to a news release.
“Our fantastic company culture and the most talented people in the industry are the reason for this outstanding success” Fabian Grimm, managing director of Mankiewicz, said in the release.
To meet the growing demand for its high-tech coating system, plans for Mankiewicz’s two-story, insulated precast logistics facility includes first-floor office space and loading dock doors, with availability on the second floor for a future upfit or laboratory space. Sitework includes infilling an existing pond for future expansion, as well as construction of a new truck dock and additional parking lot for the company’s growing team of employees.
More than 125 years of innovation have made Mankiewicz one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality coating solutions for industrial series production in the automotive, aviation, railway, machinery, yacht and wind power industries, the release stated. Today, a team of over 1,600 employees is working at 16 locations worldwide.
“We are honored to once again partner with the Mankiewicz team to help bolster the manufacturer’s production operations and further support the positive impact it’s business has had on the North Charleston community,” Quinn Gaines, director of business development of Choate Construction in Charleston, said in the release.
