LeanCor to Open Summerville Office
Kentucky-based company moves corporate functions to Dorchester County.
LeanCor Supply Chain Group, a Kentucky-based Third Party Logistics(3PL) provider, announced plans today to locate portions of their corporate functions in Dorchester County.
The Lean Logistics firm will lease space located on West Richardson Avenue in Historic Downtown. The office location will be in the Town Hall Annex retail space. The company expects to create 10 new jobs within the first year, and anticipates additional positions as the Dorchester County branch grows.
LeanCor anticipates their Dorchester County operations will be open by the second quarter of 2012.
“It is always an exciting time when a company chooses to do business in Dorchester County, but especially when that company plans to establish parts of their corporate functions here. This announcement is further proof that the decisions we are making today are the right ones for building a strong business climate for tomorrow,” said Larry Hargett, Dorchester County Council chairman. “We are pleased to welcome LeanCor to our community.”
Company officials pinpoint the county’s quality of life and proximity to existing regional industriesas a deciding factor in positioning their firm in the heart of the Lowcountry.
"My family and I feel we are at home in Summerville. When we moved here three years ago it was quite illogical considering our business is in Kentucky," Robert Martichenko, LeanCorfounder and CEO, said. "It just seems logical now to move a portion of LeanCor’s sales and marketing and consulting teams to Summerville so I can work more closely with my team members."
