GOVERNOR HENRY McMASTER SUPPORTS COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT APPROACH

Kershaw County, SC – Kershaw County welcomed South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster at the new Heritage Pointe Spec Building on Thursday, March 7, 2019. During his visit, Chairman Julian Burns updated Governor McMaster and attendees on the County’s recent economic development product improvements efforts. These include completion of a 50,000 square foot spec building and the decision to move forward on additional engineering and permitting at The Central SC MegaSite –  increasing the marketability and attractiveness of Kershaw County to industrial prospects.

“Kershaw County has, without peer, the finest and most-ready MegaSite in the state.  The 1,400 acre MegaSite on Interstate 20 is in a preeminent location for industrial growth,” stated Julian Burns, Chairman of Kershaw County Council. “This gathering today is proof that we believe in ourselves and that our state leaders believe in our vision as well.”

Senator Vincent Sheheen introduced the Governor at the event remarking, “Kershaw County is on the move. From Elgin to Bethune to Camden to all parts of the County we see partnership taking place to move this County and this state forward.”

Governor McMaster praised Kershaw County’s recent decisions saying “I believe this place, this date, with this building and this megasite is a great model. Not only for the rest of South Carolina, but for the rest of the country as well.”
