Thursday, July 25, 2018, Cameron Packett, Membership Relations Manager

FLORENCE, S.C. – ARCTIC, an international company specializing in computer cooling devices, will locate its first American venture in Quinby with plans to convert the former IGA building in the Quinby Plaza into a combination of warehouse and office space.   

ARCTIC, headquartered in Hong Kong, China with operations in Germany, will use its new facility in Florence County to distribute products throughout the United States. Employees have been hired for warehouse and marketing positions with more set to be hired for sales positions.

Florence County discovered ARCTIC at a Select USA Investment Summit last year where Lauren Stanton, Assistant Director of Florence County Economic Development Partnership, met with ARCTIC representatives. The Gould Business Incubator, proximity to ports and business-friendly climate were key factors in ARCTIC’s decision to locate in Florence County.

Operations are currently taking place at the Gould Business Incubator until renovations are complete at the Quinby facility.
