May 30, 2023

Blanchard Machinery Company has purchased a 61.3-acre site at Sandy Run Industrial Park, 15th Street in Gaston, SC. Blanchard is expanding its existing operation for parts, service, component rebuilds, complete machine rebuilds and additional support services for its other 14 branches across South Carolina.

Blanchard Machinery’s corporate campus is located at 3151 Charleston Highway in West Columbia and will continue to be the home of corporate administration functions, machine sales, used parts and Blanchard Energy.

“For over a decade, Blanchard Machinery has relied on Colliers for our real estate transactions across South Carolina,” said Boyd Blanchard, President of Blanchard Machinery. “Once we determined our need to expand onto a greenfield site, we engaged Chuck Salley and his team to find us the best location possible in the Midlands. We are extremely pleased with our new site at Sandy Run Industrial Park and the partnership with Colliers that made it possible.”

Colliers | South Carolina’s industrial brokerage team of Chuck Salley, SIOR, Dave Mathews, SIOR, Thomas Beard, SIOR and John Peebles, SIOR represented Blanchard Machinery Company in the transaction.

“We were privileged to represent Blanchard Machinery in finding an adequate site in central South Carolina to support its continued expansion in the state,” said Salley, Managing Director in Colliers’ Columbia office. “Sandy Run Industrial Park, located in Calhoun County just minutes from the intersection of I-26 and I-77, provided an excellent site for Blanchard’s current and future needs.”

LCK, Colliers | South Carolina’s project management partner, will oversee the construction of the facility. Cox & Dinkins will serve as the civil engineer and Boudreaux Group as the architect.
