Childress Klein Starts Construction on Industrial Project

New facility in Fort Mill will house headquarters for fabrics manufacturer OXCO

Fort Mill, S.C. – Childress Klein, one of the Southeast’s preeminent real estate developers, has started construction on a 217,636-square-foot industrial facility in Fort Mill that will house the headquarters of OXCO Inc., a manufacturer of non-woven industrial fabrics.

OXCO announced plans to relocate its operations from Charlotte to Fort Mill last year and will occupy 149,588 square feet at the new facility, which will be located within Lakemont Business Park at 547 Kings Ridge Drive. Established in 1994, OXCO is a light manufacturer and supplier of non-woven materials for a variety of markets and end-use applications. The company plans to add 130 jobs at its new headquarters.

“We are thrilled to reach this milestone with Childress Klein and start construction on our new headquarters facility,” said C.T. Chu, president of OXCO. “We look forward to moving into our space later this year.”

The building is expected to deliver in August, and Childress Klein is marketing the remaining 68,048 square feet available for lease. Featuring one of the region’s most desirable distribution locations, 547 Kings Ridge Drive is located just off interstate 77 and offers easy access to interstate 485. The building features a rear-loading configuration, an ESFR sprinkler system and a 30-foot clear height. Ample trailer parking is available with opportunities for future expansion.

“Childress Klein is delighted to partner with OXCO and start construction on 547 Kings Ridge Drive,” said Matt Harper, a partner with Childress Klein. “With its visibility and proximity to major interstates, we anticipate strong demand among industrial users for the remaining space at this state-of-the-art facility.”
