York County capitalizes on its geography, offering the advantages of a South Carolina location and business climate with adjacent access to the largest metropolitan area in the two Carolinas – Charlotte. Just across the South Carolina border, York County brings together the grace and charm of life in a small community with the opportunities and advantages of the big city. The city of Rock Hill serves as the commercial center, while the city of York is the county seat. Accessibility is key and York County boasts many transportation advantages. I-77 runs through the eastern portion of York County and I-85 runs near the northwestern part of the county, joined together by an excellent highway network. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is less than 30 minutes away and the Port of Charleston, the busiest container port in the Southeast and fourth nationally, is a three-hour drive. The diversity and strength of the business community continually supports growth. In the past several years, York County has averaged $200 million in industry and business development and 1,700 new jobs annually. So, why York County? The best of all worlds is offered here. Quality of life including top ranked schools in the state, excellent business climate, and accessibility are just the beginning. South Carolina incentives make the move to York County a smart one. Our reasonable cost of operation and productive labor force make staying in business here even smarter.
