Manufacturing Works: Build A Career in It
Today, manufacturing even the simplest components has become a complex, highly precise process that demands skilled employees and sophisticated equipment. Our region has been up to the challenge for years, evidenced by the success of the manufacturing facilities here. They’ve seen what a highly skilled workforce we have, and its focus on quality and productivity. 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 to be a central location.
Manufacturers also know that the quality of our workforce comes at an affordable cost and with fewer hassles given 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 Aiken. When you consider the abundant workforce from the Aiken-Augusta, SC-GA Metropolitan Statistical area that includes nearly 608,000 people; we’re ready to accommodate any project.
