Calhoun County

When Henry Ford was producing the first Model T in 1908, South Carolina was creating a history if its own with the formation of Calhoun County, named after former US Vice President John C. Calhoun. Small but mighty, Calhoun County boasts globally-recognized businesses like Starbucks, one of only a half dozen roasting plants found worldwide, and Devro Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of casings. Its convenient location between the state capital of Columbia and the Port of Charleston, as well as ease of interstate travel make it a formidable competitor when it comes to attracting big business.
