The City of Fountain Inn Welcomes Tesla's First Plant in South Carolina

The City of Fountain Inn is thrilled to welcome Tesla, a leader in electric vehicles, to our city for its upcoming regional distribution center, opening in early 2024. This decision marks a significant milestone for our community and contributes to the growing automotive and electric vehicle economy in the Upstate and South Carolina. 

Tesla's regional distribution center will be in Fox Hill Business Park, developed by The Sudler Companies, which is home to the recently opened Sage Parts Headquarters. Tesla's focus in Fountain Inn will be on the regional distribution of vehicle parts, occupying the entirety of Fox Hill's Building 3. The park's potential to accommodate significant manufacturing and warehousing activity aligns perfectly with Tesla's growth plans. 

Tesla's mission to transition the world to sustainable energy resonates with the City of Fountain Inn's commitment to progress. With a reputation for safety and innovation, Tesla's addition is welcomed by city officials and business leaders. 
 
City of Fountain Inn Mayor GP McLeer expressed excitement, stating, "We are proud of Fountain Inn’s strong growth as a vital part of our state’s robust automotive and mobility sectors with Tesla's announcement. This facility, located in our city limits, will not only support local families with jobs, but also confirms that Fountain Inn is a great place for companies, large and small, to do business." 
 
This partnership not only marks a significant economic milestone but also solidifies Fountain Inn's position as a destination for innovation and growth. We eagerly look forward to the positive impact this will have on our local workforce, businesses, and overall community vitality.
