Dorchester County is centrally located midway between New York and Miami, and is "right next door" to a multimodal transportation network. With nearby access to the Charleston International Airport, the rail networks of CSX and Norfolk Southern, Interstates 95 and 26, and the Port of Charleston, the Lowcountry provides a variety of options to help companies receive materials and transport their finished products quickly.
There are over 5,000 acres of available sites, 3 certified Industrial Parks, and a variety of buildings to choose from that include a 42,000 square foot virtual spec building. Prospective industries will find companies like Bosch, Caterpillar, ArborGen, and Showa Denko already enjoying Dorchester County's low business costs, productive workforce, and exceptional quality of life. In 2010, we announce $200 million in capital investment and over 650 jobs, and in 2011, we announced an investment of nearly $300 million and 176 new jobs.
