York County's Lap Tech Industries plays critical role for major power steering supplier

It’s all in the details. As we climb into our vehicles and head off into our day, we aren’t likely to be thinking about the precision that goes into the smallest most critical components required to operate our power steering or fuel injection systems. We also might not realize that some of the niche industries providing solutions for these components exist right here in York County.



Read about the critical role Lap Tech Industries played when one of the largest power steering system suppliers in the world faced a severe problem. Niched or diverse, companies like Lap Tech are choosing York County as their home, providing innovation, collaboration and solutions with surrounding industries alike. That is Just Right for business.

"As a long-time owner at Lap Tech, it became clear several years ago that we should expand and relocate our operations. After searching many areas, we picked York, South Carolina. The business-friendly atmosphere created by both the county and the State of South Carolina were instrumental in our decision. We continue to grow and invest with a focus on workforce development as we strive to train and retain highly skilled workers that support our plans for growth within York County." 
- Ralph Hardt, Majority Owner, Lap Tech Industries
