Investor Events


The Georgetown County Economic Development Alliance partnered with the SC Department of Commerce to host its first Industry Roundtable. Industry leaders around Georgetown County were invited to discuss workforce resources, connection opportunities with other industry leaders, emergency preparedness, and state level business resources and support. Representatives from the SC Department of Commerce, SC Manufacturing Partnership, and Georgetown County Emergency Services spoke with this group, which allowed the industry leaders an opportunity to discuss their concerns and address what areas they needed assistance in. This event sparked an interest in the industry leaders as they were finding new ways to recruit potential employees and have training programs to use for students entering the workforce. Since this initial meeting, there has been three roundtables and this is expected to be an ongoing event. 


The Georgetown County Economic Development Alliance held a networking reception to introduce CEOs of the public/private sector to each other and to members of Georgetown County and City Councils. They were able to engage in casual conversation and bounce ideas off of each other on ways to grow Georgetown County. This event preceded the CEO Roundtable which was held the following day. That next morning, CEOs from the public and private sectors of Georgetown County were able to create working groups around 3 to 4 economic development priorities, with a focus of two to start working on. Five priorities were established, and the two that were chosen as top priorities were; Housing and Workforce. These working groups would help with creating timelines that lead to solving problems and accessing opportunities around the established priorities. After establishing those working groups, the Alliance would then re-engage with the CEOs at a later date to begin working on specific action items to address those priorities. The attendees were able to provide and gain insight on the business and economic development environment in Georgetown County. 


The Georgetown County Economic Development Alliance was able to celebrate with Envirosep on their ribbon cutting ceremony for expansion. Envirosep is a full-service engineering and manufacturing company that specializes in fabricating Modular Central Plants and skidded fluid handling, heat transfer and energy recovery systems for virtually any industrial or commercial application. The expansion of their manufacturing complex included a new 100,000sq ft, 4 story building that will contribute to Envirosep’s continual growth in factory-built Modular Central Plants and Skidded Mechanical Systems. Having Tim Tilley and Envirosep’s community as longtime supporters of the Georgetown County Economic Development Alliance helps to show the value in investing in Georgetown County. This served as Envirosep’s second major expansion. Angel Tilton, the HR director, is a part of the CEO Roundtable working groups, as well as, the Industry Roundtable group.
