Mungo Homes, a homebuilder with communities throughout the Southeast, is expanding its corporate headquarters in Richland County. The $10 million investment will create 40 new jobs.
Mungo Homes will build a new, 20,250-square-foot facility to house marketing, human resources, information technology, accounting, purchasing and customer service teams. The new building will be adjacent to the current headquarters, located at 441 Western Lane in Irmo, which will receive extensive renovations.
“This investment supports Council’s commitment to bolstering economic development throughout Richland County while contributing to the success of local business,” said Overture Walker, Richland County Council Chair. “The expansion will not only be an asset to the Irmo area with the creation of new jobs but also add to the vibrancy and quality of life in the community. We welcome and are excited about this new opportunity for growth.”
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. Individuals interested in joining the Mungo Homes team should visit the company’s careers page.
“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,” Mungo Homes CEO Steven Mungo said. “We just 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.”
The S.C. 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.
