Another new plant making a home in Anderson County

HemaSouce, Inc., leases newly developed building in David Jones Park

HemaSource, Inc., has leased a newly developed industrial facility, upfitted for high-volume distribution utilizing tax-incentive financing.

The 127,900 square-foot steel building has the capacity to expand to 172,600 square feet with 32 feet clear height and 12 dock doors.

HemaSource is a technology-enabled specialty logistics provider and medical supply distributor that partners with ambulatory clinic customers to increase operational excellence in the ordering, usage, delivery and storage of medical products.

Their mission is to drive customer operational efficiencies and related cost savings in high-volume ambulatory care clinics. HemaSource’s patented data analytics software tool and its customer service has enabled it to become the preferred disposables provider to the plasma collection market, the company said.

“This new, state-of the-art facility is a strategic move that will expand our distribution capabilities, allow us to better serve our customers, and enable further growth in key markets,” HemaSource President and CEO Tom Jordan said.

“We have had a good experience with the Hollingsworth team starting up this new operation; it is extremely refreshing to do business this way.”

“Anderson County continues to grow on many fronts, and HemaSource will add to the continuing job growth we are experiencing,” said Rick Meredith, president of the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce. “The reason for this is simple. Anderson County is open for business, and the chamber works assiduously to grow our county. I also want to congratulate my partner in economic development, Tim Thompson, on his continued work with creating jobs and projects for our county. It is a great day in Anderson County.”

There are plans for another facility in David Jones now that this existing building has been leased.

Joe Hollingsworth, CEO of The Hollingsworth Companies, said, “Based on the TIF (tax-incentive financing) approved by Anderson County to attract companies, this success validates the need for this type of financing. The Hollingsworth Companies have since prepared the building site with pre-approved plans for an additional project at David Jones Industrial Park. The building is currently planned to be an identical footprint at 126,800 square feet, and can be customized to tenant specifications.”

The Hollingsworth Companies are the largest non-urban Industrial real-estate developer and construction firm in the southeastern United States, with 125 tenants and 18 million square feet of industrial space spread over 15 states.

The Hollingsworth Companies has facilities primarily in North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
