CompuCom Systems, Inc. is moving its headquarters and 1,500 jobs from Texas to South Carolina, representing the largest single job announcement in Lancaster County history. The technology infrastructure services company will invest $41 million in its new global headquarters operations over the next five to seven years.
“This is an exciting new chapter in CompuCom’s journey,” said CompuCom CEO Dan Stone. “We will build a state-of-the-art Command Center in the South Carolina office to serve as the hub of our Service Experience Management global contact center operations and corporate operations as well. In addition, CompuCom’s new headquarters in South Carolina places us closer to many of our clients, as well as near an expanding network of IT professionals in North and South Carolina.”
Located in the Bailes Ridge Business Park on SC Highway 160, CompuCom will lease a 150,000-square-foot building to serve as its new global headquarters. The newly-constructed building will house corporate offices and global contact center operations. Work on the site is underway, and hiring is projected to start by the end of this year. Leveraging CompuCom’s Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, the office is being designed as a leading “smart building” in South Carolina, using IoT to connect, automate and control all electronic systems and devices within the building – including HVAC, lighting, meters/sensors, fitness equipment, kitchen electronics, elevators, water, power, communications, TVs and security. The workspace design promotes a collaborative, dynamic environment to meet the needs of a modern workforce.
The SC Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project, along with a Rural Infrastructure Fund grant of $1 million to assist with the costs of real property improvements.
“Our state excels, not only in manufacturing and agribusiness, but is increasingly a top choice for corporate headquarters and the technology sector,” said South Carolina Department of Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt. “CompuCom joins an ever-growing community of tech businesses that call South Carolina home, and we look forward to watching them grow in Lancaster County for years to come.”
“Lancaster County is ecstatic that CompuCom has selected Indian Land for its new global headquarters,” said Lancaster County Council Chairman Bob Bundy. “This is very exciting news for the county, region and state, as we are getting one of the world’s leading IT and network solutions providers and over a thousand high-salary jobs. The project is the largest job announcement in Lancaster County history and reinforces the strength of our community as a premier location for corporate facilities.”
