Facility will insource production of key security products and bring new jobs to the region
RESTON, Va., July 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, today announced plans to establish a new security systems manufacturing facility in North Charleston, South Carolina. This will be the company's third security systems manufacturing location in the U.S., expanding its presence and support to customers.

"We're thrilled to expand into the North Charleston area and look forward to making a positive impact in the community."
The new facility will produce security systems for Leidos' Security Enterprise Solutions (SES) operation.

These systems provide threat detection by screening baggage, cargo and people at checkpoints around the world.
"Leidos' $31.7 million investment in their new facility here in the Lowcountry will lead to significant job growth and economic development," said Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC-1). "We congratulate them on their expanding operation and thank them for putting their faith in South Carolina."

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Redevelopment will soon begin on another large portion of the old North Charleston Navy Base property.
If you have visited Riverfront Park in North Charleston, you may have walked across the new pedestrian bridge – sometimes called the bridge to nowhere – but the property on the other side of Noisette Creek will soon no longer be referred to as “nowhere.”
“The City of North Charleston (has) been looking to redevelop the Navy Base since the navy base closed in the late 90s. There’s been some successes, some failures – and the latest effort has been—I’ve been working on it for years,” said Adam MacConnell, senior project manager for North Charleston.
North Charleston City Council approved a plan Monday night that would allow Jamestown LLC to redevelop the property that is owned by North Charleston from Virginia Avenue towards the river.
It would be a more than $1 billion project.
“We really wanted to get this done before Mayor Summey left because, really, he came in during the closure of the base and was a huge leader in the region during that time, which was really a crisis for the region,” MacConnell said.
3,000 residential units, including apartments, will be part of the plan.
“For us, it’s an opportunity to create a central business district like a downtown center for North Charleston. A true downtown. We have the old village, and it has been wonderful- it’s a great, great community that is built around there. Other than that, we have Tanger. We have some of the mall areas. But we don’t have a real downtown. And to be able to create a downtown area with waterfront access to the public that has places for people to work, live, to eat, to play.”
State Representatives Marvin Pendarvis and Wendell Gilliard released statements about the plans. They want 30% of the contracts for work to go to minority-owned businesses, and 30% of the residential properties to be affordable housing.
“The agreement that we have provides an aspirational goal of 15% disadvantaged business enterprise participation,” he said,
The agreement provides at least 17% of the units for workforce housing, meaning rent would be kept where people making 120% of the area median income could afford it.
Reps. Pendarvis and Gilliard also want Mayor-elect Reggie Burgess, and the new council, to have a chance to review the plans.
“This project has taken 30 years and it’s going to take 30 more years to build this project out. Every administration from now through the end of this project is going to have an opportunity to put their mark on it,” said Mac Connell.

During her second State of the Port address, South Carolina Ports President and CEO Barbara Melvin showcased how SC Ports is a powerhouse port, serving as a powerful alternative gateway for cargo owners seeking a well-run port in the thriving Southeast market, a South Carolina Port Authority news release stated.
With more than $3 billion invested into port infrastructure, SC Ports is positioned to be the preferred port on the U.S. East Coast, the release stated.
While addressing a packed room of more than 800 people, Melvin announced that SC Ports will add at least 2 million TEUs of additional capacity at the Port of Charleston by modernizing North Charleston Terminal, making it comparable to Wando Welch Terminal, according to the release.
With upgraded cargo-handling equipment and an optimized terminal layout, the already-efficient container terminal offers future growth potential, the release stated.
“We have the opportunity to enhance North Charleston Terminal and add capacity to an already-deepened asset to further support our customers’ supply chains,” Melvin said in the release.
As part of the Charleston Harbor Deepening Project, the Cooper River has been deepened up to North Charleston Terminal. This depth, combined with the South Carolina Department of Transportation’s plans to replace the Don Holt Bridge on Interstate 526, sets the stage for the modernization of North Charleston Terminal, the release stated.
“A taller bridge and deepened harbor can accommodate larger vessels, and enhanced terminal capacity will drive growth,” Melvin said in the release. “The South Carolina Department of Transportation is playing a pivotal role in this vision. We are excited to see this critical highway infrastructure project benefit the people who live here, as well as the businesses that depend on the port. These investments will support SC companies’ growth well into the future.”

SC Ports has strategically invested in critical capacity and capabilities, while continuing to provide reliable service and efficient operations to keep freight moving in the supply chain, the release stated.
“We are experts at quickly working ships for ocean carriers and efficiently moving cargo for the businesses who entrust us to expertly handle their goods,” Melvin said. “We provide the service, speed and connectivity that our customers depend on to thrive.”
Cargo continues to flow from the U.S. West Coast to the U.S. East Coast port market, as companies seek predictability, reliability and access to the Southeast.
The Southeast market is booming, with more people moving into the region and businesses investing in new or expanding operations, the release stated. Even as manufacturing and retail imports have declined across the U.S., the Southeast market continues to thrive with an influx of new residents and industrial growth.
“Port-dependent companies are investing in new operations, including advanced manufacturers, EV and battery manufacturers, solar panel producers, retailers, e-commerce sellers and import distribution centers,” Melvin said. “We have capacity for your supply chain, and as an operating port, we provide unmatched service to propel your supply chain.”
Investing for the future
With the ongoing growth in the Southeast, SC Ports is actively building port capacity and rail capabilities with the new Navy Base Intermodal Facility in North Charleston, the release stated.
Significant progress has been made over the past year to prepare the site for new cargo-handling equipment, buildings and rail tracks, the release stated. The state-of-the-art cargo yard will be served by CSX and Norfolk Southern when it opens in July 2025.
This near-port intermodal operation will further speed goods to market, alongside a future barge operation that will transport containers between port terminals.
“These critical infrastructure projects are made possible by $550 million in state funding,” Melvin said. “The South Carolina Legislature and Governor McMaster understand the key role our port plays in driving our state’s economy. When our port grows, our state thrives.”
SC Ports is also expanding rail-served Inland Port Greer to handle customer growth in the Upstate over the past decade, the release stated. The expansion involves doubling cargo capacity and enhancing rail capabilities.
In the Lowcountry, Charleston now boasts the deepest harbor on the U.S. East Coast at 52 feet, capable of seamlessly handling fully loaded vessels at any tide.
SC Ports has also invested in its ro-ro and breakbulk operation and high-performing container terminals in Charleston, the release sated.
The modernized Wando Welch Terminal offers 15 155-foot-tall ship-to-shore cranes, giving each berth five ship-to-shore cranes to quickly work three ships at one time, according to the release. The state-of-the-art Leatherman Terminal stands ready with 700,000 TEUs of capacity to further support U.S. supply chains.
“As a state, this all makes us more competitive. When we build port capacity, we attract more businesses, investments and jobs to our communities,” Melvin said in the release. “These strategic investments have generational impact across our entire state. SC Ports is proud to keep freight moving for South Carolina.”
Driving economic growth
Melvin highlighted how port investments drive economic growth in South Carolina, creating generational opportunities for South Carolinians.
A new study found that having a world-class port in South Carolina makes a nearly $87 billion statewide economic impact each year, according to Dr. Joseph Von Nessen, a research economist and professor at the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business, who authored the study, the release stated.
The 2023 SC Ports’ Economic Impact Study found that port activities support 1 in 9 jobs in South Carolina, meaning that 260,000 S.C. jobs are tied — directly or indirectly — to port operations and port users, the release stated. These jobs account for both those employed by the port and maritime industry, and those working at port-dependent businesses around the state, like advanced manufacturers or retail distribution centers.
“We have remained incredibly competitive as the 8th largest port in the country, and when port-dependent businesses thrive, it creates opportunities in our communities,” Melvin said. “This growth is thanks to our best-in-class customers, industry partners, visionary state and elected leaders, strong supporters, incredible Board of Directors, and the most amazing port teammates and maritime community in the country.”

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Calhoun (WMSL 759) arrived at their homeport in North Charleston, Sunday, after delivery from Ingalls Shipbuilding and supporting missions throughout the Coast Guard’s Seventh and Eighth districts.
The Coast Guard accepted the delivery of the 10th national security cutter (NSC) on Oct. 13, 2023, after the initial christening ceremony in Pascagoula, Mississippi, June 4, 2022.
Calhoun is the fourth Legend-class NSC to be homeported in North Charleston, joining Coast Guard Cutters Hamilton (WMSL 753), James (WMSL 754), and Stone (WMSL 758).
Calhoun’s crew began deploying to Pascagoula in March 2023. Following an intense 37-day post-delivery period, Calhoun supported the Coast Guard’s Eighth District in response to an oil discharge approximately 20 miles northeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River in the Gulf of Mexico. Calhoun remained on scene for 48 hours, providing key offshore command and control capability to the multi-agency response.
“Our crew members have more than earned their time back home,” said Capt. Timothy Sommella, commanding officer of Calhoun. “Most of our crew has surged the past 18 months in support of other Coast Guard units to meet global commitments. The most recent deployment of over 120 days to the Gulf Coast for the cutter’s delivery and acceptance was particularly challenging but tremendously satisfying. We finally sailed away as a crew for the first time with the same commitment to excellence and determination that the ship’s namesake, the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard, Charles L. Calhoun, displayed during his distinguished Coast Guard career. We are incredibly thankful this time of year for the personal and professional support from our friends and loved ones who stood with us, and we will continue to forge those bonds, whether at sea or ashore.”
During the remainder of Calhoun’s first patrol, Calhoun provided a forward presence in support of Homeland Security Task Force-Southeast and Operation Vigilant Sentry within the Coast Guard Seventh District’s area of responsibility to deter irregular migration and save lives in the South Florida Straits while testing its vital equipment, systems, and completing required training.
“It is a privilege to be a part of such an amazing team of professionals,” said Senior Chief Petty Officer Aaron Deluca, Calhoun’s command senior enlisted leader. “Having completed the challenges of acceptance, training, and sailing one of the most technologically advanced assets in the Coast Guard, I am excited to bring cutter Calhoun to its homeport and the community of Charleston.”
Calhoun is named to honor the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard, Charles L. Calhoun, who was from Ocean City, Maryland. During Calhoun’s tenure, he was responsible for improving and developing many of the Coast Guard’s administrative and people-focused programs, resulting in better communications and retention efforts within the enlisted community.
Calhoun is the newest 418-foot, Legend-class cutter to join the Coast Guard fleet. The Legend-class cutter program leads the Coast Guard’s ongoing surface fleet recapitalization and, when combined with the future offshore patrol cutters, will comprise the Coast Guard’s offshore response capability for decades to come. The cutter’s primary missions are counterdrug operations, migrant interdiction, living marine resources, defense readiness, and command and control in support of U.S. Coast Guard operations worldwide and here at home.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Frequent travelers on I-26 may be noticing a few changes as workers are clearing out trees to make room for the Palmetto Commerce Interchange Project.
Charleston County leaders say the goal would be to mitigate traffic and commute times by building an interchange between Ashley Phosphate Road and University Boulevard.
Several North Charleston homeowners say it has made their daily routines unbearable.
“They took away what little foliage we have, they’ve got to do something. This is just insulting to say this is fine,” neighbor Steve Miller says.
Miller, like many in the neighborhoods lining I-26, has lived in the area with his wife for decades.
Homeowners say the neighborhood has become a safe space for those aging in place.
“I’m getting near retirement. The idea of having to move to get away from this. I shouldn’t have to,” Miller says.
The group has been pushing for noise barriers for decades. Homeowners worry how direct exposure to the interstate could impact nearby families in the long term.
“Road noise is one of the most debilitating things that can happen to a person who is resting, our just sitting around enjoying their backyard or back porch,” North Charleston City Councilmember and neighbor Virginia Jamison says.
“As they build this ramp up, it’s going to elevate the trucks going up there, diesel fumes,” North Charleston homeowner Bill Knippenberg says. “It’s going to envelop all those houses.”
Neighbors say with the hard work they have done to afford their “forever homes,” it is not easy to get up and leave.
“I’m asking myself, where would I go?” Jamison says. “What would I do if I didn’t have this comfort spot?”
The group says they have been in communication with the South Carolina Department of Transportation and local officials in attempts to achieve a barrier of any kind.
Charleston County released a statement on the project itself, claiming they will be planning public meetings to provide updates and answer questions in the next coming months.
The Palmetto Commerce Interchange Project began construction in August of 2023 and the goal is to be done by early 2026.
