JW Aluminum, a leading North American manufacturer of flat-rolled aluminum products, has signed a lease with Daniel Island Sun, LLC to occupy 22,000 square feet of Class A office space at The Landing, 115 Fairchild Street on Daniel Island. Carolina One Commercial Real Estate represented JW Aluminum in the transaction. The location will house up to 50 teammates to perform key corporate functions as the $250 million expansion progresses at JW Aluminum’s existing Goose Creek manufacturing facility.
Stan Brant, chief operating officer at JW Aluminum, said, “Vertical construction is underway for the new 222,000 square foot building in Goose Creek, where we’re installing state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment this year. We’re actively recruiting for the 50 new positions this expansion brings to the region. We currently employ 350 teammates in Goose Creek and we require additional office space to accommodate our growing company and team.”
JW Aluminum will take occupancy of the fourth floor of The Landing in late spring 2019. The company has contracted with Wulbern-Koval to furnish the space.
Lee McCarter, chief executive officer at JW Aluminum, said, “It’s a transformational year for JW Aluminum and the addition of the space in Daniel Island is indicative of our rapid growth. We look forward to expanding our footprint in the Charleston area to continue to serve as a preferred supplier, employer and partner now and well into the future.”
