Lancaster County, South Carolina knows that its existing business community is the engine that powers the County’s economy. It is why many of our economic development efforts focus on serving the needs of existing businesses. We view ourselves as a long-term partner in the health and ongoing success of our local employers. Existing industry is our top priority and the reason is simple: They committed to us. It is our obligation to commit to them. As a result, we provide additional support to them in a number of ways, including enhanced tax incentives just for being an existing business.
The LCDED Team meets regularly with local companies to discuss their needs and provide support for their business strategies. LCDED partners with them in numerous ways such as assisting them with access to capital, working with local schools and state entities to develop customized training programs, and developing incentives tailored to the specific needs of their expansions.
