Colliers Keenan Plays Key Role in Bringing Performance Food Group to ColumbiaNovember 2, 2007
COLUMBIA, SC – November 1, 2007 – Colliers Keenan has played a key role in a deal that will bring Performance Food Group Company, a Fortune 500 company, to the Columbia area. PFG evaluated several potential locations throughout the Southeast before selecting 3245 Platt Springs Road in Springdale, South Carolina as the site of a new shared services center.
The coordinated efforts of Beronica Whisnant and Henry Roe of Colliers Keenan, the Central SC Alliance and the South Carolina Department of Commerce, among many others, were essential in PFG’s decision. The announcement represents a continuing trend of national companies moving into the area.
Expected to bring over 100 jobs to the area initially, the facility will be the central location for select financial support functions and is slated to be operational by the first half of 2008. PFG will be the newest addition to the Airport Technologies Buildings, which through the efforts of owner Charles Small, president of Diversified Development, to bring new tenants to the area, are now home to over 1500 new jobs.
“This project is a very gratifying win for Lexington County and the greater Columbia region as a whole. We at the Central SC Alliance are proud to have played a role in attracting Performance Food Group to the area, and our efforts were greatly aided by both Henry Roe and Beronica Whisnant of Colliers Keenan. It was a pleasure to once again work with them for the betterment of the community.”
–Stephen Roddey, Central SC Alliance
“I wish to congratulate Performance Food Group on the opening of their service center in Springdale, and I welcome them to our community. As Lexington County continues to experience strong economic growth, I am pleased that companies like PFG have chosen to contribute to that success.”
–Congressman Joe Wilson
