New Greenville County Warehouse to Add Nearly 150 New Jobs
In yet another story that shows how forklift driving jobs are in high demand, a foreign logistics outfit plans to open a new warehouse in Greenville County, South Carolina.
The Japanese firm is making a large investment in the Greenville area, with a budget of around $11 million to operate the new facility.
Forklift drivers looking to work at the new KI Logistics warehouse are required to have six months of forklift operating experience, a valid South Carolina driver’s license and a high school diploma or GED.
As an added bonus, the local Greenville County warehouse will also benefit two area companies who are currently KI Logistics customers: Drive Automotive Industries and JTEKT Corp. a pair of firms with ties to the auto industry. KI Logistics lists Toyota as one of its main customers.
The warehouse is scheduled to open in July, which means that forklift drivers with less than 6 months’ experience can use the extra time to get the required qualification.
The new plant will also serve as the North American headquarters for KI Logistics and is expected to open in July, according to a news release.
