Lancaster County, South Carolina knows that its existing business community is the engine that powers the area’s economic health. That’s why so many of our economic development efforts focus on serving the needs of existing businesses. We view ourselves as long-term partners in the health and ongoing success of local employers, because they’ve already made the commitment to do business here.
For example, when an existing company expands their local operation, they will often qualify for incentives that exceed those of new companies when new jobs created and locations within the county are comparable.
It’s also why our team meets regularly with local companies to discuss their needs and help them develop strategic plans for long-term growth. We’ve stepped in to help in many ways, from aiding in the search for capital funding, to working with local schools to develop customized training programs, to developing incentive programs around a company’s specific plans. In every way, we’re here to strengthen the local economy.
