Kershaw County and the surrounding region are fast growing - over 18% over the last decade.  That means industries have a rich labor pool of skilled workers to draw from to meet their employment needs.  That’s good news for growing companies – today and in the future. 

The good news continues as South Carolina is right-to-work and employment-at-will, and Kershaw County features a low unionization rate of 1.0%.  Our workers will work with you to meet the challenges and opportunities faced in today’s every changing global markets.
