Message from Secretary Hitt: Economic Diversity is Strength for Team S.C.

It’s often said that strength lies in diversity. For Team South Carolina, that notion certainly rings true. More than just a manufacturing powerhouse, the Palmetto State has developed a multifaceted, well-rounded economy. An example of this economic diversity is the fact that South Carolina has increasingly become a top destination for headquarters facilities and other office operations. From 2011 to 2017, office and shared services firms announced 26,300 new jobs and $1.5 billion in capital investment across the state.

From our thriving downtowns and growing workforce to our exceptional academic institutions and remarkable global connectivity, South Carolina has it all. Add in the low cost of living and low cost of doing business, and it becomes clear why so many firms are opening office operations within our borders. Simply put – South Carolina truly is ‘Just right.’
