Finding an abundance of streams and rivers, textile manufacturers began operating in Upstate South Carolina in the 1820s. From those early days, Greenville County has gradually transformed from the textile capital of the world into an office, engineering and advanced manufacturing center of excellence. As South Carolina’s most populous county, Greenville is situated in the northwestern corner of the state and is part of one of the nation’s fastest growing areas, “The I-85 Mega-Growth Corridor.” Located on I-85 between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA, Greenville is just 200 miles via I-26 to the Atlantic Ocean and the Port of Charleston. To the northwest and just 30 minutes away are the Blue Ridge mountains. Access to the rest of the U.S. is made easy by the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, recognized as one of the most user friendly ones. With a unique blend of southern traditions and international influences, gentle rolling hills and beautiful, majestic mountains, Greenville County is just the right mix for a great place to live, work and play.
