Grow Here

York County has a vibrant and healthy economy because of the growth and diversification of our existing businesses.  Each year a vast number of companies invest new capital and create dynamic jobs that help our local economy to develop.  The York County Economic Development Department supports our local businesses through a robust Existing Business Retention Program.  The following highlights our dedicated staff, services, programs, and resource partners focused on assisting existing businesses in York County.

York County possesses a reliable infrastructure network that can reach both national and international destinations. Logistics, distribution and manufacturing operations thrive here and represent a growing sector in the local economy.

Given the excellent transportation network, Ross Stores, West Marine, Northern Tool, Stanley Black & Decker, McKesson, U.S. Foods, and Exel, a third-party logistics company, have large distribution centers in the county. Many of the top-ten employers in York County are now financial-related operations, including Wells Fargo, CitiFinancial, and Mergent. The county is also now home to new headquarter operations such as LPL Financial and Lash Group, which recently invested a combined $240 million in a new office development and brought more than 5,000 new jobs to Fort Mill. Other companies such as Shutterfly, Broad River Furniture, and Schaeffler Group have recently relocated or expanded their existing operations in York County.

Schaeffler is gratified to invest in the expansion of our manufacturing plants and engineering, sales and administration offices in Fort Mill, S.C. Our growth has been achieved by supplying state-of-the-art technological innovations that are designed and manufactured by our outstanding employees. We are grateful to Governor Nikki Haley and the State of South Carolina for their enduring support of our operations as we continue our long and mutually rewarding partnership.
