The Port of Charleston and the Upstate’s I-85 corridor – two undisputed economic engines of South Carolina united by the newly established inland port.

Volvo, Daimler and Boeing – three powerhouse manufacturers making blockbuster job announcements in the Lowcountry.

BMW, Toray & Michelin – three of nearly 1,400 manufacturers in the Upstate pledging over $3.95 billion in new building construction and expansion projects in the Upstate in 2014.

What do these numbers mean for South Carolina’s manufacturing industry, specifically in the ten-county Upstate region? Will Greenville remain in the top ten list of “America’s Engineering Capitals”  (#6, Forbes magazine, 2014) or will future growth head to the Lowcountry within the decade to come? Join representatives from South Carolina’s top manufacturing corporations and leading economic development officials on August 25th for a panel discussion as they weigh in on the state of manufacturing with regard to business recruitment, supply chain development, recent investments and challenges/opportunities for the A/E/C industry.

Panelists include:

  • Catherine Hayes, Executive Director, SC Automotive Council
  • Andy Carr, Regional Vice President, SC Manufacturing Extension Partnership
  • Max Metcalf, Government & Community Relations Manager, BMW Manufacturing
  • Brian Gallagher, Marketing Director, O'Neal (Moderator)
