(WLTX) South Carolina has one of the fastest growing economies in the U-S and one of the fastest growing manufacturing sectors in the nation.
That according to a recent U.S. Commerce Department report.
The report ranked South Carolina's economy as the 12th fastest growing in the nation.
Last year, 2012, was the third consecutive year of manufacturing growth for the state. This was due largely to the fact that South Carolina has recruited more than 23,000 manufacturing jobs in the last 2.5 years.
