The Lowcountry Business and Economic Development Environment is Tailor-made For Our Target Industries:
- Healthcare & Biomedical
- Back Office & Information Technology
- Light Manufacturing & Assembly
- Logistics & Distribution
And the right fit is a comfortable fit. The Lowcountry business environment is especially suited to the types of companies that not only provide good jobs but interact positively with our communities and add value back to the overall economy.
A Combination that Clicks. Profit margins continue to be slim in this new economy, so a low cost region is critical to any new business. Our low corporate income tax rates, affordable labor and low cost energy make the Lowcountry competitive. Industrial property remains available for a reasonable cost in the Lowcountry, and policymakers clearly are committed business and economic development.
Transportation options continue to diversify globally. As manufacturing looks to return to the US, the Lowcountry is situated perfectly to provide lower cost shipping options for companies moving product globally and across the US to valuable consumer markets.
Our target industries gain tremendous strategic advantage from the shipping and transporation options found in the Lowcountry. Lowcountry businesses may choose between the ports of Savannah and Charleston, both with rail service, and convenient access to north/south transportation corridors of Interstate 95 and US Highway 17.
