In January of 2020, the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) awarded Mount Pleasant-based technology systems integrator RBS Solutions Inc. a $2.2 million contract for the installation, integration, and commissioning of operational and security systems including access control and surveillance systems at its new Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. Terminal located in North Charleston, South Carolina.
The Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. Terminal is currently under construction and is the only permitted new container terminal on the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States. RBS Solutions Inc. estimates the first phase of this contract will reach completion in late 2021.
“We would like to thank the South Carolina Ports Authority for this amazing opportunity and awesome responsibility. We will continue to provide the SCPA with industry-leading customer service, a value that has set us apart and allowed us to build lasting relationships with our clients,” president and CEO Robin B. Segars states.
About the Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. Terminal
The SCPA is developing the new Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. Terminal (HLT) project, which consists of a new state-of-the-art three-berth container terminal with approximately 286 acres of upland development and 3,510 linear feet of wharf in North Charleston, South Carolina. This new container terminal is situated approximately four miles north of downtown Charleston on what was once the Charleston Naval Complex. Super-Post Panamax Cargo Ship traffic will have direct access to the terminal from the Atlantic Ocean via the Cooper River shipping channel.
About RBS Solutions Inc.
RBS Solutions Inc. was founded by married couple Robin and Stephen Segars in 2015. As the couple was preparing for a partial empty nest after raising their large blended family together, they decided it was a good time to take a risk and make a “small business baby” out of the commercial security firm. Stephen had over 30 years of experience in security integration, and Robin had over 30 years of experience in business and accounting. It proved to be a perfect combination. RBS Solutions Inc. has made a 30 to 40 percent growth for each of the five years it has been in business. The company has developed logistically as well as with the number of employees. RBS Solutions Inc. began with the South Carolina Ports Authority as its only client and has since grown to service multiple businesses which include the South Carolina Historical Society, Ashley Hall, WABCO, and more.
