To establish operations, the company is moving into a 77,000-square-foot space located at 1171 Howell Road in Duncan, S.C. Brose is currently occupying 10 office spaces in Spartanburg Community College’s Center for Business and Entrepreneurial Development (CBED), a soft landing pad facility. The soft landing pad is an innovative new concept, designed to promote and house new economic development projects in the region. A unique business strategy, landing pads allow companies to build a core while they ramp up operations in South Carolina.
