Aerospace & Aviation

Located in the heart of South Carolina and only a short drive from Boeing South Carolina’s Dreamliner production facility in Charleston, the Central South Carolina region is climbing to new heights.

With a rich manufacturing history and strengths in materials and manufacturing engineering, the region is ready to support a thriving aerospace and defense industry. Aerospace suppliers like GKN have found that the region provides the perfect low-cost environment, while also providing a strategic logistical advantage. In addition to close proximity to Boeing, the nine-county region is well positioned to assist aerospace suppliers and OEMs with easy access to Honda Jet, Gulfstream, Airbus, and GE Aviation facilities in neighboring Southeastern states.
