Oconee County officials said they have been informed by Michelin that the company intends to let its purchase option agreement on a proposed distribution center in Fair Play expire.
Since August 2014, Michelin has had the Golden Corner Commerce Park under option for the purposes of building a multimillion dollar distribution center off S.C. Highway 59.
“While we are disappointed Michelin has chosen not to make a decision at this time, Oconee County will continue to market this park as an ideal location along the I-85 corridor,” said Paul Cain, chairman of Oconee County Council. “I am confident that Golden Corner Commerce Park will attract investment and jobs to Oconee County and provide a positive return to the taxpayers.”
