Blacks Electrical Supply will move its headquarters and distribution center and relocate its downtown and Woodruff Road locations.
Blacks has been at the Westfield Street location for 60 years, but will move to a distribution center near the intersection of I-85 and I-385. The company will sell its current downtown property, which is a part of an announced apartment project by Flournoy Development.
“We’ve been approached many times over the years about selling our downtown location,” said Craig Owens, president of Blacks, in a release. “Our company has now grown to the point where moving makes sense strategically. Moving our distribution center and warehouse to the I-85/I-385 intersection lets us better serve our customers at all four of our stores, as well as at future locations we have planned in the Upstate. We’re positioning ourselves to continue growing and thriving.”
Additionally, Blacks’ downtown counter will move to the Poinsett Highway corridor on Goldsmith Road. Also relocating to the new distribution center will be Blacks’ Woodruff Road counter, currently located at 304 Rocky Creek Drive, and its Lighting Showroom activities.
Blacks will continue to operate its branches in Easley and Seneca and plans to announce additional upstate locations later this year.
