Industrial Services

Why invest in infrastructure when you can invest in your core business? At the Charleston International Manufacturing Center (CIMC), we offer a wide range of industrial services to our partner companies so they can focus on their core business competencies rather than the contributory functions required to manufacture their products. Offerings of industrial services for partner companies include all the necessary components to allow you to do what you do best: make your products safely and efficiently.
