The Lowcountry business climate offers strong pro-business attitudes and policies, a growing and improving employee base, and affordable real estate and infrastructure.
Pro-business, pro-growth, pro-active. The scenic Lowcountry lies at the southern tip of South Carolina. Beaufort and Jasper counties span the region and are convenient to major transportation hubs, including an interstate highway, the eastern rail corridor, and the modern ports of Savannah and Charleston. The region’s heralded economic development association, The Lowcountry Economic Alliance, is a valuable resource and a key ally to help you make the right decisions for the future of your business. When you win, we all win.
The Lowcountry region is both charmingly historic and solidly committed to the future and to economic growth. Beaufort County’s 70% urban population and the notable increase in the wealth of the tax base in Jasper county over the past decade are just two of the Lowcountry’s attractive economic indicators.
The most southern portion of the region is home to renowned Hilton Head Island, which has a strong economic base oriented toward active retirement lifestyles, and, of equal importance, is also home to thriving industries such as high-tech, light manufacturing and aviation.
The northern portion of the region is well suited for light manufacturing, back office operations, logistics centers and other growing industries. Opportunities for general economic development are expanding rapidly and new doors are opening.
Powerful Potential. The people and resources of the region offer one of the most fertile business environments in the southeastern United States. The Lowcountry is home to an ideal combination of positive attitude, homegrown know-how, affordable infrastructure and desirable lifestyle.
