MDT Secures Long-Term Lease With Harbor Freight Tools

BENNETTSVILLE – September 1, 2021 – Marlboro Development Team, Inc. (MDT) is pleased to announce they have secured a long-term lease with Harbor Freight Tools on a new 253,800 square foot Class A industrial development located at 791 W. Fairfield Road in the I-95 Megasite in Dillon County, SC. Scheduled for completion in November 2021 and located on a 68-acre site within the park, the facility will serve as a critical need reverse logistics center for Harbor Freight.
Located in a Qualified Opportunity Zone and adjacent to I-95, the facility is less than one mile from the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) Inland Port Dillon, and will include tilt-wall construction, cross docking, 36’ clear height, 50’ x 54’ column spacing with 60’ x 54’ speed bays, ESFR fire protection, and expansion capability to over 600,000 square feet. The project is MDT’s third speculative project in Dillon County with a fourth speculative development of 250,000 square feet currently under design.
The I-95 Megasite also is home to Harbor Freight’s 3,000,000+ square foot East Coast Import and Distribution Center.
“Harbor Freight has been a proud corporate citizen in Dillon County for 20 years and we take our commitment to the community very seriously,” said Trey Feiler, SVP of Real Estate for Harbor Freight Tools.
“We are thrilled to partner with MDT and the Dillon community on this exciting project as it will not only serve as a critical piece of infrastructure in our global logistics network, it will bring additional jobs and other benefits to the local economy.”
“MDT’s relationship with Harbor Freight spans many years and encompasses projects of both the industrial and retail nature across the country. We could not be happier to partner with our friends at Harbor Freight Tools on this project and look forward to working together to facilitate the continued growth and prosperity of the local community,” said William L. Fleming, Jr., President and CEO of MDT and M/PD Electric Cooperative. “MDT made an investment early on in over 3,000 acres surrounding the Inland Port, and this project with Harbor Freight is further validation for this critical infrastructure investment and the wave of new development we will experience in the community.”
