Shimano Inc., a multinational manufacturer of products for the bicycle and sports fishing industries, is expanding its existing Charleston County operations. To accommodate its continued growth, the company will be creating more than 30 new positions.
Established in 1921 and headquartered in Japan, Shimano specializes in the development, production and distribution of bicycle components, fishing tackle, lifestyle gear and rowing equipment. With more than 11,000 employees, Shimano has 53 consolidated subsidiaries around the world. The company first opened its Charleston County distribution center in 2002 and expanded it in 2012.
Located at 9560 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in Ladson, S.C., Shimano has now added a 22,000-square-foot office building to its existing operations. The new facility is complete with a customer experience center where its fishing division will be able to connect directly with the market.
