Young Office Acquires McWaters

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Young Office has acquired Columbia, S.C.-based McWaters, the company announced. The acquisition was finalized this week.

The acquisition adds the South Carolina markets of Columbia and Charleston and the Georgia markets of Savannah and Augusta to the Young Office footprint, which already included Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina.

“We are excited to announce the acquisition of McWaters,” Young Office President & CEO Thomas Young IV said. “Like Young Office, the McWaters brand has been highly respected for decades. Going forward, we will continue to focus on creating only the highest quality office environments for our clients across South Carolina, Western North Carolina, and Georgia.”

McWaters was founded in 1942, predating Young Office’s founding by eleven years.

“McWaters is celebrating our 80th anniversary this year, and the time has come for us to evolve into our next chapter,” McWaters President William Gresham III said. “We could not be more excited to entrust our legacy of workplace innovation to Young Office, who will without question advance our commitment to excellence for many decades to come.”

Founded in 1953, Young Office is a family owned and operated company, with seven showrooms in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Young Office serves as a single-source partner for everything clients need for their workplace — from design and furniture to flooring and technology.
