Southwire moves forward with expansion in Florence
As part of its ongoing modernization efforts, Southwire — a leading producer of industrial products, cable and wire — announced a few weeks ago an expansion at its campus in Florence. The expansion is expected to increase production capacity by 30% and create approximately 120 jobs.
The building permit for this project was approved this past week for lead contractor Craig Construction. Here are a few details on this project:
- The project is listed at $4.5 million.
- The 300,000 square foot campus has grown over time, and this expansion will include approximately 340,000 square feet of added space for new equipment.
- The project will also include renovating the existing building to enhance the team member experience, including locker rooms, training space and an outdoor picnic and activity area.
- These investments and upgrades will effectively streamline Southwire’s commercial and residential building wire efforts, complement existing products and emphasize the facility’s culture and labor pool.
- Construction should be completed in 2025.
