Manufacturing Works: Build A Career On It

The days when “manufacturing” suggested a low-tech industry are long gone. Today, even the manufacturing of the simplest components has become a complex, highly precise process that demands skilled employees and sophisticated equipment.

The Aiken, Edgefield, and Saluda region has been up to the challenge for years, evidenced by the success of manufacturing facilities here. They’ve seen what our highly skilled workforce and its focus on quality and productivity have meant to their bottom lines. They know our connectivity and transportation make it easy to access the raw materials they need and ship their finished products out across the country and throughout the world. Companies that supply the Southeast’s many automotive plants find us a central location.

Manufacturers also know that the quality of our workforce comes at an affordable cost and with fewer hassles thanks to the fact that South Carolina is a right-to-work state. Local workers value knowledge, and our area’s K-12 and higher education resources play active roles in delivering the skills manufacturers need. Area employers benefit directly from the proximity of Aiken Technical College, Piedmont Technical College, and the University of South Carolina at Aiken. When you consider the abundant workforce from the Aiken-Augusta, SC-GA Metropolitan Statistical area that includes over 575,000 people; we’re ready to accommodate any project.
