Alexseal Yacht Coatings Moves to South Carolina
Alexseal Yacht Coatings, the paint system manufactured by German-based Mankiewicz Gebr. and Co., moved its U.S. operations from St. Louis to Charleston, SC. Mankiewicz renovated a 24,000 square-foot building, which includes a state-of-the-art lab, production, technical training and warehouse facility and provides new employment opportunities for the local community. The move provides faster access to Alexseal shipments from Germany through the Charleston port of entry, decreased delay for West Coast shipments via direct access to Southern trucking routes, closer proximity to the hub of its U.S. customer base and better resources for their employees, the company said.
