Hughes Investments, Inc. is pleased to announce Dodge® Bearings and Power Transmission, a division of global technology company ABB, as BridgeWay Station’s newest office tenant. Dodge, a leading manufacturer of bearings, gearing, and power transmission components, is moving its headquarters from the current location in Greenville, S.C. to BridgeWay Station, where Dodge will have the ability to create a more customer-focused Innovation Center.
Dodge will relocate over 250 employees from its current building on Pelham Road to a 75,000 square foot state-of-the-art building that will accommodate Dodge offices as well and an Innovation Center for developing and testing Dodge products. The building’s efficient floorplates, space design, architecture, and finishes, as well as its location within a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-used development, will cater to Dodge’s collaborative and forward-thinking workforce and culture, fostering creativity and promoting a thriving work environment.
BridgeWay Station broke ground in April of this year and is under construction as the first New Town Center development in the Upstate. BridgeWay Station will be a multi-phase, mixed-use development. Dodge’s office building is the first building completed in Phase 1 of BridgeWay Station’s Master Plan. The building was constructed in partnership with MCA Architecture and Harper General Contractors primarily of Tilt-Up wall panels and glass. This is only the second office of its kind in the Upstate to use this highly robust and cost-effective technique.
“We are pleased to welcome ABB / Dodge to BridgeWay Station,” said Phil Hughes, President and Founder of Hughes Investments, Inc. “Their highly educated workforce is a perfect fit for the interactive, vibrant, and creative design of the development. Their employees will benefit from the access the restaurants, shops, living space, parks and entertainment options within a beautiful, walkable destination.”
Dodge joins Jackson Marketing, Spectrum, and Greenville Hospital Systems among the other office users in the 500,000+ square feet of surrounding office space and condominiums previously developed by Hughes Investments. In addition to Dodge’s office building, the first phase of development at BridgeWay Station will include approximately 69,939 SF of retail, 210,824 SF of residential, 81,000 SF of institutional development, 24,691 SF of plaza and pavilion public space, and 5+ acres of parks connected to the Swamp Rabbit Trail and the new, iconic pedestrian bridge spanning I-385.

Dodge’s new office building is located at the intersection of Holland Road and BridgeWay Boulevard (formerly Centerpointe Boulevard) in Mauldin, SC.
