Chesterfield County, South Carolina, is recognized by its affordable cost of living, far below the national average, with available skilled, semi-skilled and trainable non-union workers. Just southeast of Charlotte, the county is strategically located for easy access to five interstates; Charlotte, N.C.; Columbia and Florence, S.C.; and the Port of Charleston.

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 business; a place that is building tomorrow’s workforce with creative programs at both the secondary and post-secondary levels; and a place with guaranteed labor availability through the REWARDS program and readySC.

Chesterfield County is a place with large tracts of undeveloped land, S.C. certified sites and industrial parks with all utilities, including: rail and access to vast quantities of extremely pure water; wastewater; reliable, competitively priced electricity; natural gas and superior telecommunication access, including Sonet.

Chesterfield County has a small town lifestyle and big city connections; a place where 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 South Carolina’s famous beaches AND North Carolina’s gorgeous mountains with year-round golf and a temperate four-season climate.
