TICO Manufacturing Expands Operations in Jasper County
June 21, 2017
TICO (Terminal Investment Corporation), a manufacturer of terminal tractors and related equipment for the port, intermodal, and distribution industry sectors, will expand their operations at Cypress Ridge Industrial Park in Ridgeland with the addition of a parts distribution center as part of their product support program.
Currently employing 145 at the Ridgeland site, TICO’s expansion will add 9 jobs at the industrial park, where the company will utilize an existing building near their current operations to house the parts distribution operation, consolidating operations from two locations.
SouthernCarolina Alliance, the regional economic development organization, partnered with Palmetto Electric Cooperative and Jasper County to support and encourage TICO’s decision to grow their operation by locating the new maintenance and distribution division in the industrial park, providing easy access to the manufacturing facility.
