The Home Depot announced Thursday it plans to expand operations in Jasper and three other South Carolina counties. 

The company said it is growing its supply chain and distribution operations in Jasper, Charleston, Greenville and Lexington counties. The expansion will create almost 100 new jobs, including 14 in Jasper County.  

“We are thrilled that The Home Depot, a nationally and internationally recognized company, is the latest company to invest in operations at the Riverport Commerce Park in Jasper County,” County Council chair Barbara Clark said. “The company will be a great addition at this growing industrial park, which is perfect for distribution, just minutes from the Port of Savannah and the future Jasper Ocean Terminal.” 

In Jasper County, the company will add a new distribution center at RiverPort Commerce Park in Hardeeville. A news release said the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to assist with costs related to the project. 

“The City of Hardeeville is proud to welcome Home Depot to our community,” Hardeeville Mayor Harry Williams said. “Home Depot brings to Hardeeville a quality corporate reputation and quality jobs and we look forward to a long and successful relationship between our family and theirs.”
