$15 million investment will create 15 new jobs

HYDERA, a joint venture between Pacolet Milliken and OURAY, today announced plans to establish operations in Berkeley County at the Charleston International Manufacturing Center (CIMC). The $15 million investment will create 15 new jobs.

Located at 1690 Bushy Park Road in Goose Creek, HYDERA is a full-service International Organization for Standardization (ISO) container depot that specializes in servicing the needs of the bulk liquids transportation industry. HYDERA will provide cleaning, storage, heating, repair, testing and maintenance of the ISO containers.

“Berkeley County has proven to be a great place to invest, attract talent and grow our site. Along with our partner OURAY, we are excited to be starting up this new company, HYDERA, to serve the growing needs of the bulk liquids market in the Charleston region,” said HYDERA CEO and CIMC President Kent Fonvielle.

The new facility is expected to be fully operational by April 2022, with storage and transportation services being offered as soon as October 2021. Individuals interested in joining the HYDERA team should complete the hiring form on the company’s website.

“When OURAY was looking to expand our service offerings to our chemical shipping and logistics customers along the East Coast, Berkeley County was a natural fit. Berkeley County has quick access to the South Carolina port system and national rail and highway infrastructure, as well as good proximity to an expanding customer base. We are excited for the future of this region,” said HYDERA President and OURAY CEO J. Aaron Montgomery.
