The Urban Electric Co. is planning to expand its Charleston County operations with more than $10.7 million in funding, creating about 180 new jobs in the process.
The expansion plan comprises a new facility that will operate as the new headquarters and showroom, which will be one of the edifices at its multi-building campus in North Charleston. The facility is expected to have its online presence by the end of the year.
“Charleston’s creative energy has always been a catalyst for our heirloom-quality lighting designs, but its abundance of talented artisans, innovative entrepreneurial environment and culture of hospitality helps keep our business constantly pushing forward," Urban Electric Co. President and CEO Dave Dawson said in a press release. "We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to expand our operations in a community that has been such an integral part of our story of modern American craftsmanship as we begin to write the next chapter.”
