To our Valued Members:

Due to the upcoming improvement of Interstate 26, a project known as Carolina Crossroads, we will be relocating our Operations Center from its current location at 1624 Browning Road in Columbia to property we already own at 800 Huger Street in Downtown Columbia.  This is the current location of our home office.

Members will see our Operations Center relocation project begin with construction of a new three-story building at 800 Huger Street adjacent to our home office.  We anticipate completion and move in by December of 2023.  We have a well-qualified internal and external team working on this project and anticipate a seamless, behind the scenes transition of our Operations Center with no disruptions in service.

We look forward to this opportunity and encourage you to stay tuned for further updates.
