"When Suominen was choosing where to locate in 2011, there were three sites we were looking at and one factor was the cost of doing business and the business-friendly environment in Kershaw County. The Kershaw County Economic Development Office went out of their way to work with our management team working as an intermediary with the state; providing a fast turnaround and a clear desire to want us to come their community. In 2015, Suominen expanded our Kershaw County operation by adding 25 new jobs and $55.5 million in capital investment. "
