Supply chain management services
Frontier Logistics, a provider of supply chain management services with a facility in Hanahan, is expanding its Charleston area presence with the recent purchase of 26 acres at the former Navy base in North Charleston, S.C., in Charleston County. "Charleston has significant logistical advantages that reach the entire world market, enough so that it compels us to make Charleston a comprehensive launching pad for future export/import and domestic logistics needs," reports the firm's CEO. Frontier will be constructing a 400,000-square-foot, rail-served warehousing facility to support the transloading of plastic pellets for export through the Port of Charleston. Rail service will be provided by Palmetto Railways, providing connections to both CSX and Norfolk Southern.

Design, development and manufacturing of implantable medical systems
MED-ALLYs state-of-the-art, 10,000-square-foot manufacturing operation will be located in the Charleston International Manufacturing Center at 2040 Bushy Park Road in Goose Creek, S.C. An ISO Class 6 Clean Room, critical for the fabrication of implantable devices, will take up approximately half of the operating space. Key in the firm's decision to locate here is the vast network of "distinguished clinicians, university medical teams, industry partners, and university students dedicated to providing disruptive medical device solutions for patients worldwide," according to company officials. The firm is already hiring and is expected to be fully operational in March 2018.
