“The combination of the area’s infrastructure, willing workforce and local supplier base – as well as the support we received from Florence County Economic Development Partnership and the community –played a big part in our decision to locate here.”
Brian Newman, President, Honda of South Carolina Mfg., Inc.
"Our expansion strategy included establishing a manufacturing facility on the East Coast. Our products are in high demand with significant growth on the East Coast; and for us at Ruiz Foods, it's all about customer service. After conducting an initial search, we quickly narrowed our choice to this facility in Florence, South Carolina. My compliments to the State of South Carolina, the people of Florence County and the Florence County Economic Development Partnership - their enthusiasm, cooperation, and flexibility made it possible to make our decision quickly."
