Mungo Homes is expanding its corporate headquarters in Richland County with a $10 million investment to build a new, 20,250-sq. ft. facility to house marketing, human resources, information technology, accounting, purchasing and customer service teams.To be constructed by Cohn Corporation out of Columbia, the new building is anticipated to be complete by late 2024 or early 2025, and house the accounting, customer service, human resources, information technology, marketing, and purchasing.
The $10 million investment will include a new, 20,250 square foot building to sit adjacent to the current headquarters, which will receive extensive renovations.
“Even though our footprint has expanded to four states, this company was ‘born’ in Irmo, South Carolina so it’s important to us to remain headquartered in our home community,” said Mungo Homes CEO Steven Mungo. “We appreciate the support from the Department of Commerce, along with Richland County, to help make this project a reality, and we look forward to providing our team members with an updated work environment that mirrors the innovation and thoughtfulness we put into our homes.”
Established in Columbia in 1954, Mungo Homes is part of Berkshire-Hathaway Inc. and works in markets throughout the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. The company expects to complete this project in late 2024 or early 2025.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $200,000 Set-Aside grant to Richland County to assist with the costs of building improvements.
“Mungo Homes’ decision to expand its corporate headquarters in Richland County is a testament to the company’s strong growth and commitment to its South Carolina roots,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “With a $10 million investment and the creation of 40 new jobs, this expansion will help further contribute to South Carolina’s thriving economy.”
