CAMDEN, SC — As part of AT&T’s continuing efforts to drive economic development and investment in South Carolina, AT&T and representatives from Kershaw County Economic Development today announced that Steeplechase Industrial Park has been designated AT&T Fiber Ready, the first business park in South Carolina to receive AT&T’s Fiber Ready designation.

“The fact that Kershaw County is home to the first AT&T Fiber Ready park in the state reflects the great work being done here in the community to grow our economy,” said County Council Chairman Julian Burns. “This designation can be a tremendous asset for our economic development leaders as we continue to work to attract businesses and jobs to our region. Kershaw County is open for business.”

In today’s world, connectivity is vital to new employers and businesses of every type. The AT&T Fiber Ready designation helps economic development leaders more effectively position their communities for site selection by emphasizing the availability of high-speed, fiber-based services.  

"The availability of fiber-optic facilities and high-speed communications infrastructure is always among the top priorities a business has in evaluating a potential site for relocation or expansion,” said Peggy McLean, Director of Kershaw Economic Development. “In clearly showing the availability of advanced technology, this Fiber Ready designation will be a valuable tool as we continue to aggressively recruit businesses that depend upon state-of-the art communications to compete internationally.” 

“We are excited to recognize Steeplechase Industrial Park as one of many places across South Carolina where AT&T’s fiber infrastructure is in place and ready to help local businesses drive job creation,” said Pamela Lackey, president of AT&T South Carolina. “Every day, AT&T’s employees use our billions of dollars of investment to deliver high-speed Internet for consumers and businesses. Those investments are possible in large part because of the smart, pro-investment policies championed by our state leaders and by local leaders such as Chairman Burns.”

"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. "
