A Formula for Success in Upstate South Carolina

The ingredients to success are part of our DNA: a history of textile production, a rich array of advanced materials suppliers, engineering prowess, and 300+ automation and robotics companies, all located within the heart of the booming Southeast region, where over 100 million people can be reached within a one-day drive.

Here, global leaders like Lonza manufacture pharmaceutical products, Pall Corporation is supporting rapid vaccine production through single-use technology, and medical technology companies like Chartspan and Sync.MD are revolutionizing data management.

Life science is the fastest-growing segment of South Carolina’s innovation economy, with industry leaders announcing more than $249 million in capital investment and 2,490 jobs in the Upstate since 2015. Life science firms are thriving in South Carolina, with support from statewide organizations such as SCBIO, the South Carolina Research Authority and its South Carolina Medical Device Alliance. All these, boosted by collaborative higher education partnerships at Clemson University and University of South Carolina, and nationally recognized technical training programs such as Apprenticeship Carolina and readySC.

And, don’t just take our word for it. Hear directly from Upstate industry leaders.
