Sunland Distribution has purchased a 722,000-square-foot warehouse near the interchange of interstates 85 and 385 in Simpsonville.

The sales price was not announced.

The facility at 1312 Old Stage Road will serve as the operating base for Sunland’s Scotts Miracle-Gro account and home for its new corporate headquarters.

The building includes 607,400 square feet of warehouse space on the ground floor, and another 120,000 square feet on the second floor. It once served as the distribution center for former Upstate textile manufacturer Pillotex Corp.

“We see a real opportunity in the Upstate to grow our business,” said Arch Thomason, CEO of the third-party logistics firm, in a news release. “We’re committed to making strategic investments here that will allow us to further develop and enhance Sunland’s ability to provide valuable logistics to our customers in the automotive, retail and chemical markets.”

Sunland provides logistics services to the automotive, chemical, retail and paper industries. It operates more than 1.5 million square feet of warehousing.
