Delta Power Equipment Corp. is moving from rented space in Anderson to a larger, 133,240-square foot complex the company has purchased in Spartanburg. Brian Marshall, the company’s business development director, said the 38 employees in Anderson are being asked to make the move to the new U.S. headquarters-distribution center. He said the company plans to add about a dozen more employees.
Delta designs, manufactures and distributes stationary woodworking tools.
"Opening our own, company-owned U.S. headquarters shows our commitment to the woodworking machinery marketplace," Delta President Kevin Chang said in a statement. "Putting down roots and building our foundation here in Spartanburg will help us attract the best talent as we continue to grow the Delta business."
Marshall said the opportunity to purchase a location is the main reason for the move to Wingo Corporate Park in north Spartanburg.
“That is the commitment the company is making to be in the business,” Marshall said. Marshall said Delta opened in 2012 at the location on Pearman Dairy Road in Anderson after Chang purchased the brand from Black and Decker. He said Chang “looked at all kinds of locations and really liked South Carolina.” Marshall said there is a “lot of talent in the power tool industry in Anderson.”
“We do a lot of business with Lowe’s and Home Depot and Amazon” and both Spartanburg and Anderson are good locations, Marshall said. “We’ve grown the brand year to year since we’ve had it. We are going to continue our growth.”
Lyons Industrial properties represented Delta in the purchase of the complex from 2651 New Cut LLC, a subsidiary of Reger Holdings LLC. Colliers International represented the seller. The transaction amount was not provided.
