Blacks Electrical Supply will move its headquarters and distribution center and relocate its downtown and Woodruff Road locations as part of a strategic relocation of its Greenville County facilities.
After 60 years of operations on Westfield Street in downtown Greenville, Blacks is moving its distribution center near the intersection of I-85 and I-385. Blacks will sell its current downtown property, which is a part of an announced apartment project by Flournoy Development.
“We’ve been approached many times over the years about selling our downtown location,” Blacks president Craig Owens said. “Our company has now grown to the point where moving makes sense strategically.
“Moving our distribution center and warehouse to the I-85/I-385 intersection lets us better serve our customers at all four of our stores, as well as at future locations we have planned in the upstate. We’re positioning ourselves to continue growing and thriving.”
Blacks’ downtown counter will move to the Poinsett Highway corridor on Goldsmith Road.
“We’ve been in downtown Greenville for 60 years, and we remain committed to being here. Our new counter will help us give our downtown customers the best service every time,” Owens said.
Blacks’ Woodruff Road counter, currently located at 304 Rocky Creek Drive, will move to the new distribution center. Blacks will relocate its Lighting Showroom activities to the distribution center as well, and will serve interior designers, contractors and homeowners with a state-of-the-art virtual showroom.
Blacks continues to operate its branches in Easley and Seneca and plans to announce additional upstate locations later this year.Tagged with tED
