Carousel manufacturer AS/R Systems Inc. has announced that it will move its operations to Ridgeland, South Carolina, which is located in Jasper County.
At the new location, the company's affiliate, Robertson Partnership, will build a 40,000-square-foot facility at the Cypress Ridge Industrial Park.
“We chose Jasper County for the relocation of our Illinois operation because the location offers excellent access to markets via I-95 and the Ports of Savannah and Charleston," AS/R Systems Owner Doug Robertson said. "In addition, Gov. Haley, Jasper County Council and the economic development team have provided a business-friendly community in which our company can grow.”
AS/R was launched in 1991. It is a leader in the technology transfer market for specialized goods to person (G2P) technology, a major component of manufacturing and distribution enterprises.
The company manufactures customized vertical and horizontal carousels and provides technical services, particularly in the healthcare, e-commerce, manufacturing and retail sectors.
"Jasper County proudly welcomes AS/R Systems Inc. to our industrial community," said Jasper County Council Chairwoman Barbara Clark. "Our county government will do everything we can to create the best pro-business environment for this project because we believe that every job created improves the quality of life for a family in our area.”
