Given its proximity to Interstates 26 and 95, the Tri-County region is a popular place for businesses to set up shop.
The Dorchester County Economic Development Commission, located in Summerville, works to bring new business and industry to the area. With the area’s growth in recent years, new or relocated businesses are being put in a position to succeed.
The Orangeburg County Development Commission (OCDC) goes about its business in a similar manner, putting forth efforts to create and increase commerce and its tax base. The OCDC recruits new employers to the region and helps them develop their place in the Tri-Counties.
In addition, the Tri-County Regional Chamber of Commerce does its part to help economic development in the area by endorsing area businesses and inviting them to enjoy the benefits of joining the Chamber.
