Four County Electric Membership Corporation recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new district office in Rose Hill, located at 686 West Charity Road. The new office replaces the 56-year-old office located on N. Sycamore Street.
“We simply outgrew the old Rose Hill location, which was built in 1964,” said Four County EMC CEO Mitchell Keel. “Due to the growth we’ve experienced over the years – in members, employees, and technology – we needed more space. This new facility provides us with almost 18,000 square feet of covered space on 15 acres of land. We now have the latest technology and the capacity to meet Four County’s needs in this district – both for day-to-day operations and especially during storm restoration efforts.”
Construction of the new facility began in October 2019 with Cooperative Building Solutions (CBS), but planning began several years ago.
“The previous location served the cooperative well for 56 years,” explained Four County EMC Board President Franklin Williams. “With the building’s age and no room to grow, we realized several years ago that we would need to build a new office. We are all delighted that we could stay in Rose Hill and we have this modern building that will meet the needs of future generations of members, employees and the growth of Four County.”
