Chester County Economic Development

The Ideal Location For You.

Conveniently situated between Columbia, Greenville, and Charlotte, America’s 20th largest city, Chester County balances easy access with easy living. Our central Carolinas location places our region within a day’s drive of New York and Miami, as well as 60% of the nation’s major metropolitan areas. We also provide five strategically located foreign trade zones.

While South Carolina is the nation’s 40th largest state, we’re 5th for the largest state-maintained road system and ranked America’s most efficient by UNC Charlotte. Poised along the I-77 Corridor, 35 miles south of Charlotte and 45 miles north of Columbia, SC, Chester County is just 45 minutes from I-85 and I-26, one hour for I-40 and two hours from I-95. Locally, South Carolina Highway 9 provides four-lane access from I-77. This intersection of interstates provides efficient access to our state’s ports and the Eastern Seaboard.
