Chesapeake, VA (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
C&K Systems, a global provider of omni-channel retail solutions designed specifically for specialty retailers, has recently expanded its operations in Myrtle Beach, SC by adding 3000 sqft. of office space, a shipping and receiving warehouse, new products and service offerings, and 23 new technology jobs. The recent expansion has played a direct role in recording record growth for the 25-year company, which poises them to become one of the largest technology companies in the Coastal and Pee Dee regions of South Carolina.
This strategic growth initiative has not only led to increased revenue for C&K, but it has also had a direct economic impact on the Myrtle Beach metropolitan area and the Grand Strand area — a complex of beach towns and barrier islands stretching from Little River to Georgetown, South Carolina. Every year millions of tourists flock to the Grand Strand beaches, resorts, golf courses, and unique gift shops, which means it is vital to the area's economy that these businesses stay up-to-date on technology and services in order to remain a relevant tourist attraction. The products and services that C&K offers helps those companies remain relevant in a competitive market by enriching the customer's experience.
Investing in the economy of Myrtle Beach also means investing in the companies and people who keep it running. Recently, C&K became a member of the Grand Strand Technology Council, a group dedicated to fostering development and networking among the technology-related companies in the region, in order to help solidify and strengthen the technology industry. The addition of 23 new technology jobs, as well as their partnerships with local businesses, demonstrates C&K's commitment to the area.
"We are steadily forming solid relationships with the Myrtle Beach area's technical schools to develop curriculums for the skill sets we need," says C&K Systems' Founder & CEO Kevin Bowden. "These relationships are very important because not only do they help us grow as a company, but they also help prevent young, innovative technology minds from taking their talents to technology-rich startup cities such as San Francisco and Boston."
"Our internal investments and recent successes has positioned us for rapid growth over the next several years," adds Mr. Bowden. I'm extremely excited about the future of C&K and the potential for growth for the technology industry in the Grand Strand area."
