Des Moines, Iowa-based TMC Transportation has purchased 2716 Shop Rd. for $2.3 million, according to Newmark Wilson Kibler who represented the seller, McQueeney Properties, in the sale of the property.
The property was formerly home to Thermo King Columbia Inc., a transport temperature-controlled fleet services trucking company.
TMC--the nation's largest employee-owned flatbed trucking company--already has a presence in the Midlands on Charleston Highway in West Columbia. The space on Shop Road will give them an additional 17,000-square-foot facility plus acreage.
"TMC is excited to continue its growth and presence in the Southeast with this latest acquisition," said Jason Webb, executive vice president of asset management at TMC Transportation. "We look forward to beginning the development of a 44 acre, cutting-edge trucking terminal to support our fleet and train America’s best truck drivers."
