“We are pleased to move forward with our plans for the new parts distribution center in Lexington County. This facility will be an important part of our future growth. South Carolina has long provided us with an excellent business environment and we look forward to continued growth in the state. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials,” said Lowell Stoelting, director of Parts Operations for Husqvarna.
Husqvarna will lease warehouse space and begin moving into the facility in the first quarter 2010. The company also currently operates a manufacturing facility in Orangeburg County that will support this new operation in Lexington County.
