Mankiewicz Coatings Breaks Ground on Expansion in Berkeley County Operations

CHARLESTON, SC – Mankiewicz Coatings celebrated the start of construction on their new, $25 million, 90,000 square foot facility in Berkeley county on Monday, November 9, 2015.

Following the great success of their 2010 move to Charleston, which included a $5 million investment to acquire and upgrade a 25,000 square foot facility in Berkeley County – Mankiewicz Coatings has now outgrown their existing facility. The construction of the new facility in Berkeley county will include a modern Manufacturing and Logistical Center, a Research and Development Lab and a Technical Education Center for customers.

The global company headquartered in Germany, Mankiewicz Coatings serves the automobile, aviation and general industries. Mankiewicz customers include Airbus, Boeing, BMW, CNH, Ford and Hatteras Yachts.

Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler welcomed the expansion in Berkeley County with the following remarks:

“It is my honor and privilege to be standing here today and to be welcoming this huge expansion of an incredible Berkeley County business.

Today’s groundbreaking is a testament to the hard-work and vision of Mr. Dietz and his incredible team of employees here at Mankiewicz Coatings. Today’s ground breaking is also further proof that Berkeley County is open for business and Berkeley County means business.

Not only is Berkeley County honored to have Mankiewicz Coatings call Berkeley County home, but we are also extremely grateful for the investment of both resources and people that Mankiewicz is making with this expansion.

My pledge to all of the employees of Mankiewicz Coatings is that Berkeley County Government will do all that we can to support you in growing your business and continuing to create jobs in Berkeley County.”
