Dodge® Bearings and Power Transmission, a division of global technology company ABB, announced that it is moving its headquarters from the current location in Greenville, S.C. to the new BridgeWay Station development in Mauldin, S.C. The relocation will allow Dodge, a leading manufacturer of bearings, gearing, and power transmission components, to create a more customer-focused innovation center.
The 143-year old company has spent more than 35 years in its current building on Pelham Road near I-85 and is making the move to a brand new office building in the much-anticipated new development in Mauldin. The move will affect more than 250 employees and is expected to take place by the end of 2021.
Following an extensive research and evaluation process on the cost to upfit its current building, the leadership team determined a relocation to a modern facility was the right decision for the company to meet its needs for current and future growth and development.
“As a leader in our industry, Dodge needs an office environment that aligns with our innovative, forward-thinking nature, and the new office building will allow for improved space utilization, better collaboration, lower maintenance costs, and improved operations all located in this exciting new development,” said Roger Costa, President of Dodge Bearings and Power Transmission. “We have a lot of great things happening at Dodge, and we are all looking forward to the many advantages our new innovation center will provide.”
The new location is a 75,000 square foot state-of-the-art building and will accommodate Dodge offices as well as an Innovation center for developing and testing of Dodge products.
The architecture, space design and layout, finishes, and furnishings for the new innovation center were selected to provide a flexible and collaborative work environment. “The new location is an investment in our business and employees, and our team has worked hard to create an ideal work environment with many amenities and resources for our team members, partners, and customers,” Costa added.
Referred to as the “Upstate’s first town center development,” BridgeWay Station, which officially broke ground in April, is a multi-phase, mixed-use development along I-385 near Bridges Road in Mauldin. On over 170 acres and a build out spanning many years, BridgeWay will feature offices, retail shops, restaurants, multi-family residences, hotels, outdoor event areas, and several parks. Dodge’s office building is part of phase one of the BridgeWay Station development.
