Autometrics Upgrades to a New Facility in 2021
If you follow us on social media, you probably know that construction of our new facility is nearing completion.
We began the process with a contract to purchase a 5 acre lot in a light industrial park in Summerville, SC right at two years ago. Storm water retention and permitting halted the project for thirteen months, but we finally broke ground in March 2020.
If you are familiar with our current location, we operate from a 4,800 sqft workshop with a separate 7,000 sqft warehouse down the street. The new 22,500 sqft building will be integrated with approximately 10,000 for workshop and office, 10,000 warehouse, and 2,500 open bay (for dyno and cleaning).
Progress was steady, though slower than we would have liked due to weather and COVID. At this point, it looks like we will just miss completion before the new year. We expect to get a CO in January.
The racing season kicks off at the end of January, so the timing of the move to the new facility is not optimal. Our hope is to be operating at full speed from Fabricators street before the end of February 2021.
The address for the new location is 118 Fabricators St., Summerville, SC 29483. Contact information will not change, so we can still be reached through current channels.
