The GADC predicted an improving economic outlook from COVID's impact, accented by the addition of Fox Hill Business Park in Fountain Inn — the County’s first major Class A business and industrial park in nearly 20 years – at its June 16th “2020 Virtual Annual Meeting.”
The online event drew 400+ GADC Investors, business leaders and special guests, and was conducted online to ensure “attendee” safety as the state continues its reopening from COVID-19 precautions. The virtual meeting featured live and taped comments by Lieutenant Governor Pamela Evette, U.S. Senators Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham, U.S. Representative William Timmons, Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt, and others.
Greenville County celebrated 2019 capital investment of $401.8 million, along with 2,178 new high-paying jobs, with mean wages well above both County and South Carolina averages. Each metric ranked 2019 as among the County’s three best years ever on record.
A meeting highlight was the announcement of Fox Hill Business Park, located on 172 acres in the City of Fountain Inn and being brought to life by The Sudler Companies, a family- and veteran-owned and operated development firm based in Chatham, NJ. Read the full meeting recap here.
