Berkeley Means Business

On Wednesday, August 3, 2022, Berkeley County and State leaders gathered to celebrate a special groundbreaking ceremony for RL Cold, a company that will bring much-needed cold storage and warehousing to the region to address critical needs in the domestic food supply chain.

This $90-million capital investment for the County will create 100-plus jobs, help provide a good tax revenue for the County, and help us increase our services for our citizens.

Thank you to the State, South Carolina Ports Authority and Santee Cooper for supporting this project, located in Camp Hall – Campus 5 in Ridgeville. Camp Hall was designed for growth in mind, putting the infrastructure and entitlements in place to attract world class businesses.

Thank you to County Councilman Phillip Obie II for speaking on behalf of the County and County Council. Obie currently serves as Berkeley County’s Ambassador to the Port.

We are grateful for your investment in Berkeley County, RL Cold & Maersk!
