Founded in 1987, the company opened a satellite office in Piedmont, S.C. five years ago and has grown there to 36 employees, who also will move to the new headquarters office downtown. The new positions will come from the combination of moving employees from its offices in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and North Syracuse, New York, which has been WYNIT's headquarters. WYNIT Distribution will also look to hire talent from the Upcountry.

Employees in the downtown offices will include the existing teams from the Piedmont, S.C. satellite office, as well as the customer service, purchasing, finance, marketing, components of IT, and logistics teams. All other sales positions will remain in their current locations as part of the consolidation of offices. In addition, key staff will remain in North Syracuse, New York, and Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
