Putting Power Behind R&D

Innovation has long been the key to America’s global leadership in business and the sciences, and thanks to the technical and advanced research expertise of our local workforce, South Carolina’s Aiken, Edgefield, and Saluda region is an excellent location for research and development efforts.

We’re the longtime home of the Department of Energy’s Savannah River National Laboratory and its Energy Materials Research Laboratory, which is located at the Applied Research Center (ARC), a 60,000-square-foot facility dedicated to energy research.

That brainpower and the highly skilled workforce that supports those efforts benefits many local companies, among them Advanced Glassfiber Yarns and AmbioPharm, Inc. Bringing your research facilities here will put your R&D professionals in close proximity to many of the leading minds in research and give you access to our collaborative, collegial scientific community.
