A marine electrical system design company is expanding in North Charleston.

New Wire Marine is adding a warehouse to its Dorchester County location in a $1.8 million investment that will create 38 new jobs over the next five years, according to a news release from the office of the governor.

Located at Dorchester Industrial Park in North Charleston, New Wire Marine is adding an 8,000-square-foot warehouse at its site to accommodate company growth and production, the release stated. The expansion will more than double the current production floor size, allowing for more computer numerical control (CNC) machinery and increased production capacity.

"This expansion is an exciting next step in our journey to dominate our industry,” New Wire Marine President Eric Steele said in the release. “It will allow us to increase capacity, build even better dash panels and hire more incredible people right here in Dorchester County, S.C. I can't wait to see what the next few years bring.”

Founded in 2010, New Wire Marine delivers American-made, professional-grade marine products, offering an assortment of custom-made marine switch panels, electrical distribution panels, gauge and meter panels, and other marine-grade electrical necessities, the release stated. The company provides engineered, customizable and affordable products to customers worldwide.

“With our state’s ideal location and talented workforce, companies like New Wire Marine are finding continued success,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III said in the release. “We’re proud that New Wire Marine is growing in Dorchester County and appreciate the company’s continued commitment to South Carolina.”

The expansion is expected to be complete in January 2023. Individuals interested in employment at New Wire Marine can visit the company’s careers page.
