The Absolute E-Z Up Difference

Our company was founded on three basic values:

 Low Level Access Lifts Ladson, SC

Safety - The Top Time Booster

When workers are injured, they're either placed on light duty or leave until they heal up and get back to work. This leaves you with the conundrum do you hire a new worker (which requires an initial expense) or reassign members of your staff to make up the difference? Obviously, neither situation is optimal. The biggest factor preventing these kinds of frustrating situations is workplace safety, which is why it's our top priority at AEUP. It doesn't matter if you buy a manual platform lift in Ladson, SC, or an electric stock picker. You can rest easy when you purchase equipment from us, knowing that AEUP aerial work platforms and material handling equipment come with the most innovative safety technologies.

A few of those safety mechanisms include:

  • Anti-tilt systems, helping to prevent toppling and turnovers.
  • Built-in pothole protection for driving equipment.
  • Double-foot sensors, which halts the machine from operating unless two feet are planted on the sensors.

Note: Depending on your needs, your machinery may or may not include some of these safety technologies. Please refer to specific product pages for more details.

Lowcountry parents still face battle to find baby formula

LADSON, S.C. (WCSC) - Allison Lotz of Ladson has three children, including a 3-and-a-half-month-old baby boy.Her son needs specialized formula because he has a milk protein intolerance. Over the past month, she said shelves have been bare.“The second I wake up in the morning, I log on to Amazon, Target, and all the local grocery stores and Walmart to check to see if they have anything in stock,” Lotz said. “Then typically I will visit a few stores during the day.

LADSON, S.C. (WCSC) - Allison Lotz of Ladson has three children, including a 3-and-a-half-month-old baby boy.

Her son needs specialized formula because he has a milk protein intolerance. Over the past month, she said shelves have been bare.

“The second I wake up in the morning, I log on to Amazon, Target, and all the local grocery stores and Walmart to check to see if they have anything in stock,” Lotz said. “Then typically I will visit a few stores during the day. I have family that lives right here in town and there have been times we have gone to 20 stores in a day.”

The formula shortage began because of a combination of supply chain issues and the closure of an Abbott Nutrition plant.

Lotz said she depends on the community’s help to find the formula in stock. She’s a member of the Facebook group “Formula Finders Charleston, SC,” a group of 1,700 members. Members post when and where they find certain formulas to try to help others who need them.

“I have lost a lot of sleep. I have cried many tears over, you know, what do you do if you can’t find it,” Lotz said. “Like when we get to the point where we are to our last bottle, what do you do?”

But even if she can find two or three bottles on the shelf, it doesn’t give her a break from the search because her son drinks one 32-ounce bottle a day.

“It should never be this hard to feed your baby,” Lotz said. “You don’t have other options. They have to drink formula. So when you can’t find it, what can you do?”

She said bottles are also “astronomically expensive.”

She said sometimes it could cost upwards of $20 a bottle, and sometimes you have to pay steep shipping fees if you’re getting it from far away.

Dr. Sean Loudin, a neonatologist from Roper St. Francis Healthcare, said things soon could get better. He said over the last month, production has increased and we’ve received shipments of formula from European countries.

“I think we are about to see improvement,” Loudin said. “I know they had said at the beginning of July is when we should expect to have the store shelves look close to normal, it won’t be completely pre-pandemic levels, but they should start to have a supply on the shelves.”

For resources, Loudin said parents should first consult their pediatrician.

Parents can also log on to the websites for the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

Ladson mom fights against district trying to split up twins, shows larger problem in IEPs

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — A little over a week ago, ABC News 4 brought you the story of one Mount Pleasant mother fighting the Charleston County School District in what she says was a forced school placement change.

Since then, ABC News 4 has received dozens of reports of families going through similar situations.

One involves a Summerville mom stuck with a school district's choice looking to move her two sons to different schools.

The mother, Leslie Jackson, is described as a mom’s mom.

“I'm on top of my kids, you know, with their schooling a lot. A lot of people tell me that I’m probably the most involved parent when it comes to the kids,” she explained.

Jackson said that her love for her children resonated when she watched Olivia Rose-Walker’s story.

“When I did see [the] story about Olivia, I mean, I cried my eyes out. I felt for a mom, I felt for Olivia,” she said.

Jackson’s sons, Elijah and Xavier, also have learning disabilities. Both twins were born at 24 weeks old, with each spending numerous months in the hospital after birth. Both were diagnosed with autism with Elijah also having expressive language disorder.

While the two twins have a different disability than Olivia does, they do face a similar battle ahead.

“We had Eli’s IEP in May,” Jackson said. “They decided to place him at Malcom C. Hursey Montessori school. When we did Xavier’s IEP that next week, [it was decided] he is to go to Ladson. And I was like, well, why are they being separated from schools?”

While Olivia’s battle dealt more with the disability placement change, this challenge focuses more on the process of school placement. By the time Jackson found out about Xavier’s placement, the deadline for school choice in CCSD had already passed, leaving her with many questions.

“It kind of threw me for a loop that, they're brothers, you know, they're twins, you know? How did one get placed somewhere and one get placed somewhere else? And no one can really give me an answer for that,” she stated.

She's another mother feeling the same pain that Olivia’s mom did, while going through a school change they don’t want to do.

“This whole thing, honestly, it's made me feel emotional about it. You know, during the meeting, I almost felt like a failed parent. I was like, how did this happen?

But just like Olivia’s mom did, Jackson searched for help.

“Charleston Autism Parents [Facebook group], I put out a post on there and let them know the situation was like, [has] this happened to anybody else?” Jackson explained.

After her message was posted, she received dozens of comments in response, informing her that she was not alone. Up to 20 families reached out claiming they are in a similar situations.

“There are a lot of people that responded that [I was like] wow, I guess this happens a lot,” she said.

After seeing the responses to Jackson’s post and the messages we have received at ABC News 4, we tried to find out how often situations like these happen.

The answer is that they happen more than you might think.

“This is something that we see often.” Director of Youth Transition Program at Able SC Paige Winget said. “We have the seasons of calls from parents.”

Representatives with Family Connection South Carolina say referrals for a program which helps families navigate the IEP process have skyrocketed in the past year, with over 5,000 referrals overall to all of their programs.

“Our referrals for this program have gone up by 65% since last year,” CEO of Family Connection SC Amy Holbert said.

So the question that remains is why is this so common?

These experts say it may be the stress the pandemic has put on these families or the lack of all-around resources at every school, which forces these placement changes to specific programs.

“Ideally, you know, inclusion we know is best practice,” Winget said. “But sometimes, there's a lot of lack of training for our general education teachers, and for just our school administration, and those that are in the school that aren't necessarily always working with students with disabilities.”

These experts say it could also be the system of IEP placements, which sometimes may not meet the needs of a specific student.

“The I in an IEP is individualized, and it needs to be for that student, and not because of a specific diagnosis or something else that's determining that factor,” Director of Education and Family Support for Family Connection SC Sally Baker said.

While these experts say a lot of the times the schools or IEP administrators do have good advice for these students, in situations where they may be disagreements like in Jackson’s case, they are here to help.

We are working in school districts. We might know someone and might be able to say, let me, you know, chat with this person. Or let's get the full picture,” Winget explained.

“We've talked to all the different people that can potentially help you answer the questions along the way,” Baker said. “[We] talk about what's kind of next, what's coming. Who are you going to meet? Are you going to see how to use your voice and how to use the things that you see at home that you know your child can do? Find their strengths and how to communicate that over to their educational team?”

Able South Carolina is a disability-led organization that helps push for change in systems and communities surrounding people with disabilities.

Family Connection SC has many programs that do the same thing, including its Education Partner program, which helps families communicate with schools and gather more information on their specific IEPs to help parents make informed decisions.

It's something Jackson said is important to continuing the fight.

“If you're not okay with this, you don't have to accept that you can’t fight this. You have options,” she said.

We reached out to CCSD for a statement on Jackson’s situation. In response, the district said:

“While we can't comment on a specific student matter related to this topic, we want to emphasize we are committed to providing the best possible resources available for all of our students, and we work collaboratively with all parents and guardians. IEP teams make determinations regarding services and placement for students with disabilities based on the individual needs of each child.”

SeamonWhiteside Expands into the Industrial Sector as Demand in S.C. for Manufacturing & Warehousing Space Hits New Highs

CHARLESTON, S.C. – SeamonWhiteside (SW+), a full-service land design firm with offices throughout the Carolinas, is projected to design and build nearly 30 million square feet of industrial buildings this year alone.

CHARLESTON, S.C. – SeamonWhiteside (SW+), a full-service land design firm with offices throughout the Carolinas, is projected to design and build nearly 30 million square feet of industrial buildings this year alone. The firm’s expansion into the industrial sector comes when the demand for right-shoring — relocating a business’s manufacturing and production operations to the company’s original country — is seeing exponential growth.

Five years ago, SeamonWhiteside began chasing opportunities to expand its industrial sector and anticipated the growing need for relocating warehousing and manufacturing back to the United States as the demand for next-day delivery became today’s standard. This need grew exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic when people relied on next-day delivery as a means of life. As the trend of right-shoring exploded, SeamonWhiteside was ahead of the curve and was prepared with staffing and institutional knowledge to take on these projects.

“In previous years, SeamonWhiteside was developing 100,000 square feet per year in industrial projects. Now we are projecting almost 30 million square feet in 2022; this is not only a change for SeamonWhiteside but a change for South Carolina as a whole,” says William O’Neal, PE, Vice President of SeamonWhiteside. “We have never seen this volume of industrial projects in our state. It is through the innovative nature of this company and our desire to expand and diversify business sectors that we were privy to this trend. This allowed us to anticipate and prepare for these industrial projects before they even came to fruition and be invested in this sector by the time the demand for it rose.”

Industrial projects differ greatly from other designs and require a different skill set, relying heavily on civil engineering and less on landscape architecture. They also need larger capital investments and staffing. Since most industrial projects are in rural areas, there is less government involvement and shorter approval time frames, so the team begins the execution of plans almost immediately after conception.

SeamonWhiteside is proud to expand its industrial sector and is looking forward to witnessing the overall impact these projects will have on the entire state. To date, the majority of industrial projects come from their Mount Pleasant and Greenville offices including Coastal Crossroads, Ladson Industrial Park, Port 95 Business Park, Camp Hall Campus 4, and Palmetto Logistics. SeamonWhiteside has already started the industrial initiative to its Charlotte office as the trend of right-shoring continues to grow.

Demand for next-day delivery, exacerbated by pandemic-related efforts to onshore, is driving a huge growth in the industrial construction business for on land design working throughout the Carolinas.

SeamonWhiteside is relatively new to the industrial sector, the company said, so that accounts for some of the growth: there was simply room to grow.

Still, the company expect to design or build, or both, close to 30 million square feet of industrial buildings this year alone. In recent years the company would build about 100,000 square feet of industrial space.

“Five years ago, SeamonWhiteside began chasing opportunities to expand its industrial sector and anticipated the growing need for relocating warehousing and manufacturing back to the United States as the demand for next-day delivery became today’s standard,” SeamonWhiteside said in a news release. “This need grew exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic when people relied on next-day delivery as a means of life.”

The rapid growth is not limited to the company, according to William O’Neal, professional engineer and vice president of SeamonWhiteside.

“This is not only a change for SeamonWhiteside but a change for South Carolina as a whole,” O’Neal said in a news release. “We have never seen this volume of industrial projects in our state.

Monthly bills are less expensive in the Palmetto State … but there’s a catch.

South Carolinians pay significantly less than the national average on their monthly bills – but there’s a catch. Because income levels in the Palmetto State are so low compared to the national average, the effective amount of money citizens must devote to these necessities is higher.

In fact when you consider South Carolina’s anemic earnings, it essentially costs as much to live in the Palmetto State as it does to live in California – one of the states with the highest monthly bill rates.

That’s according to a new report (.pdf) from Doxo, an online bill management company.

South Carolinians pay an average of $1,783 on their monthly bills – including mortgages ($1,076), rent ($910), car loans ($412), utilities ($295), car insurance ($212), cable and internet ($120), health insurance ($120) and their mobile phones ($109).

That total amount is 11 percent below the national average of $2,003 – ranking the state No. 33 nationally in terms of its monthly obligations.

Again, though, there is a catch

(SPONSORED CONTENT - STORY CONTINUES BELOW)

All told, 41 percent of household income in the Palmetto State goes to pay bills – which is higher than the national average. By comparison, residents in Minnesota and Utah pay only 33 percent of their household income on monthly bills.

The most expensive place to live in America? Hawai’i …

According to the report, the Aloha State ranks No. 1 nationally in terms of the cost of citizens’ monthly bills ($2,911) and the percentage of household income devoted to paying them (44 percent).

Zeroing back in on South Carolina, Hilton Head Island is the most expensive place to live – clocking in at $2,569 per month. Bluffton is a close second at $2,524. Mount Pleasant ($2,473), Charleston ($2,185), Fort Mill ($2,166), Greer ($2,080), Ladson ($2,069), Okatie ($2,062), Johns Island ($2,040) and Clemson ($2,017) round out the top ten.

Nationally, Doxo estimates the annual monthly bill market at $4.6 trillion – with $853 billion going to mortgages, $616 billion going to rent, $493 billion going to auto loans, $399 billion going to utilities, $250 billion going to auto insurance and $166 billion going to mobile phone payments.
