ACL Airshop to break ground on new air cargo products factory in South Carolina

ACL Airshop, a global provider of Custom ULD Solutions for airlines and cargo carriers, has announced it plans to host a groundbreaking event in Greenville, South Carolina for its new air cargo products factory, the company said.

The groundbreaking is scheduled on August 15.

ACL Airshop will be moving approximately 80 existing jobs into the new factory in Greenville in 2019, thus vacating its previous facility outside the county. The company predicts an additional 32 jobs, at least, will be added in the new facility over several years following occupancy.

The 60,000 sq. ft. facility will feature high-bay manufacturing spaces for air cargo nets, transportation straps, and other products. The factory will have modern offices and stylish common workspaces, all designed with a “lean” approach. Roughly 100,000 cars daily (in total, from all four directions) will pass by this facility at the four-way convergence of two major freeways.

ACL Airshop is a one-stop-shop for leasing, sales, manufacturing, repairs, and fleet control logistics programs of Unit Load Devices (“ULDs”) and cargo control products for the aviation and transport industries. Teamed with CORE Transport Technologies of New Zealand, the company is also rolling out CORE´s patented Bluetooth® tracking technology for air cargo.
