ABOUT CHESTERFIELD COUNTY

We are committed to creating jobs and building relationships

OUR COUNTY WHAT WE REPRESENT

Imagine a place with a cost of living far below the national average with available skilled, semi-skilled and trainable non-union workers, a favorable geographic location just southeast of Charlotte USA with easy access to five interstates, CSX rail service and three ports.

 

It’s a place with business-friendly government whose taxation ranks near the lowest in South Carolina; a place that offers competitive incentive packages customized to meet the needs of businesses; a place that is building tomorrow’s workforce with creative programs at both the secondary and post-secondary levels; a place with guaranteed labor availability through the REWARDS program and ReadySC.

 

It’s a place with SC Certified Sites and Industrial Parks with all utilities including rail and access to vast quantities of extremely pure water, waste-water, reliable competitively priced electricity, natural gas & superior telecommunication access including fiber to the premise over a Sonet network.

 

Imagine a place with small town lifestyle and big city connections; a place you can still wash a car, water a lawn AND run a business without concern for water restrictions or the environment, regardless of rainfall conditions; a place that’s two hours to beaches AND mountains with year round golf and a temperate four-season climate.

 

There is really no need to imagine...
