In the biggest single day jobs announcement in South Carolina history, Gov. Nikki Haley Monday announced plans for three businesses to establish facilities in South Carolina, creating 7100 new jobs and investing $800 million in their respective projects. Giti Tire, The Lash Group and LPL Financial LLC all announced plans to invest in the Palmetto State.
The three separate announcements combine to mark the most jobs announced in a single day in South Carolina’s history, according to a media release from Haley’s office.
Giti Tire announced its plans to establish a new manufacturing plant in Chester County and to create 1,700 new jobs. The Lash Group, Inc. plans to bring 2,400 jobs to the area by establishing their national headquarters in York County, and LPL Financial LLC will also establish a headquarters in York County, resulting in an additional 3,000 new jobs.
“It doesn’t get any bigger or better for South Carolina than having the ability to announce a record-breaking 7,100 new jobs in one day,” said Haley. “This is a huge deal for our state, the hardworking people who live here, and one more reason why it's a great day in South Carolina.”
With the Monday announcements, a total of 56,239 jobs and $13.6 billion in capital investment has been announced by Haley since taking office in January of 2011, according to information supplied by her office.
