A big win for Beaufort! Project Eagle, an undisclosed, international manufacturing company, is relocating its operations to Beaufort, SC. The Chamber, in conjunction with Beaufort County Council, Beaufort County administration, and the South Carolina Department of Commerce, has worked to recruit Project Eagle which will bring 61 high-paying jobs ($24/hour) and $2.5 million in capital investment.

The company plans to utilize an existing, manufacturing building in Beaufort County, putting a vacant building back on the tax roll at 10.5%. Last night, Beaufort County Council approved a $750,000 set aside grant to Project Eagle to assist with the cost of real property improvements related to the project. A full announcement is expected to be made in early 2017 with hiring to commence shortly thereafter.

This is the third successful project that the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce has worked on recently with the other two being the expansion of Harris Pillow Supply and eviCore. Between all three projects, approximately 118 primary jobs will be created in Beaufort County, and 376 primary jobs have been retained. We are thrilled over these economic development successes.

As always, we hope you are crossing off your list by shopping local this season! We wish you all a happy and safe Holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you around town supporting our local businesses.

All The Best,

Blakely Williams
