Economic Development (2 of 3)

If there is one part of Kershaw County government most responsible for bringing new industry to the county, or having existing companies grow, it is the Kershaw County Economic Development Office. Unlike most other county departments, which are housed inside the County Government Building on Walnut Street in Camden, the economic development office is situated inside the new Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) building near I-20 Exit 98 off U.S. 521. It recently moved into that space from an older CCTC building next door.
