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, S.C., the company announced.

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.

"We have had a presence in Simpsonville, S.C., for nearly 15 years and are excited to be able to expand our U.S. operations in this region. By expanding in South Carolina, we will strengthen our North American market presence and operate in a strong and business-friendly environment," said Michael Grau, president and CEO of Mankiewicz Gebr. and Co., in a statement.
