Community Growth

The Midlands region of South Carolina is a great place to work and live, where the business climate is as good as the weather.  Columbia is a great place with enough activity to keep most people as busy as they want to be, without the traffic and high cost of living of larger cities.  When you look at quality of life and disposable income, we are hard to beat.

It doesn’t matter how much money you make especially if you have to spend it all on the basic necessities and never have time to enjoy life.  Wages here are close to what they are in the larger Metro areas, but the total cost of living is drastically lower.
