COLUMBIA, S.C. – Mediterranean Shipping Company, a leader in the container shipping industry, today announced plans to expand operations at its Charleston County facility. The company will invest more than $1.7 million and is expected to create 30 additional new jobs.
“We look forward to expanding our footprint in the Charleston area and building on our previous success. We appreciate the support we’ve received from state and local officials as we’ve grown throughout the years in the Lowcountry,” said Sergio Fedelini, vice president of Mediterranean Shipping Company.
Mediterranean Shipping Company will be adding equipment to its existing Charleston facility, located at 700 Watermark Boulevard in Mt.
