International Activity

Like the receiver on a television, our region is pulling in waves of businesses from around the world, and the frequency shows no sign of slowing. 

When standard just isn’t enough, we are HD – highly diversified – attracting businesses on a global spectrum. Our region is home to more than 140 foreign-affiliated facilities including major brands like Michelin, Koyo Corp., Ansaldo STS, and TD Bank.  A leader in attracting foreign investment, Haier was the first Chinese company to set up a US operation with its Camden, SC facility in 1999. With a centralized location, a competitive business climate, and affordable energy costs, Central SC is a global powerhouse.
