Marlboro Development Team, Inc. Developing 208,000 Square Foot Class A Speculative Industrial Facility in Dillon, South Carolina

Bennettsville, SC – November 3, 2020 – Marlboro Development Team, Inc. (MDT) is pleased to announce the development of a new 208,000 square foot Class A industrial development in the Carolinas I-95 Megasite in Dillon County, SC.  Scheduled for delivery in Q3 2021 and located on a 24-acre site within the park, the facility will be designed to accommodate modern logistics, manufacturing and distribution requirements and include tilt-wall construction, full cross dock capabilities, 200’ truck court depths, 36’ clear height, 50’ x 50’ column spacing with 60’ x 50’ speed bays, and expansion capability to at least 534,000 square feet.

Adjacent to I-95 and with frontage on the interstate, the facility will be less than one mile from the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) Inland Port Dillon, making it the closest speculative building to the terminal.  The new facility will also be the only cross-dock capable speculative building under development in the region.

The new project will mark MDT’s fourth speculative development in Dillon, with Wyman Gordan (50,000 SF), Huber Engineered Wood Products (109,200 SF), and a confidential tenant (253,800 SF) occupying the previous MDT developed buildings.  With control of nearly 4,000 acres surrounding Inland Port Dillon, MDT, along with parent company and electric provider Marlboro Electric Cooperative (MEC), continue to substantiate their commitment to the area in facilitating new capital investment, job creation, and electrical demand.

“MDT has a demonstrated track record of facilitating economic development in the communities in which we serve, and this latest investment continues to prove that we are willing and eager to foster a better life for our citizens by providing hope and opportunity for a more prosperous future,” said William Fleming, Jr., President and CEO of MDT and MEC.  “If history tells us anything, we remain confident on the belief that this building will be occupied by another great corporate citizen, evidenced by our last three speculative ventures in Dillon County.”
