1 Agribusiness Agribusiness The NESA Region is Growing. Won t You Grow With Us? The North Eastern Strategic Alliance (NESA) Region of South Carolina, located halfway between New York and Miami, is within an 8-hour drive to over 50 percent of the major US markets. The region has a vast agricultural production capacity making it an ideal location for agribusiness and food processing operations. Pairing the agricultural production capacity of the NESA Region with value-added companies and food processors presents a proposition that is mutually beneficial for food processors who are seeking a low cost location proximate to agricultural production and for the farmers who would supply those operations. According to data from the South Carolina Statistical Abstract, the NESA Region represents 21% of the state s land area, has 17% of its farms, 19% of its farmers, 25% of its farmland, and 21% of its total agricultural receipts. Taken together, these numbers are indicative of the potential agricultural powerhouse that exists in the nine county region. The people of the NESA Region have been involved in agribusiness related activities for more than 200 years and bring a proud and strong tradition of agricultural excellence and creative entrepreneurship that is unparalleled in comparison to other parts of the nation. Considering the logistical advantages of the region, our agricultural production capabilities, and the agricultural heritage of the region, there is no doubt that your company can be successful in the NESA Region of South Carolina. Advantages of the NESA Region The NESA Region is the prime location for the agriculture and food processing industries due to extensive infrastructure, close proximity to the Ports of Charleston, Wilmington, Georgetown and Savannah, competitive land and labor costs, and diversity of agricultural products produced. Other key advantages of the NESA Region include: Average annual wage rates lower than the U.S. average. Electrical and construction costs lower than the national average. A wide variety of available industrial properties well-suited to the agriculture and food processing industry. Tax credits of up to $9,000 per job. World-class training programs and facilities located in the heart of the region. North Eastern Strategic Alliance P.O. Box Florence, S.C

2 A Prime Location for the Agribusiness and Food Processing Industries With a location halfway between New York and Miami and consisting of nine counties in South Carolina with an impressive labor draw of nearly 350,000 and a business-friendly environment, the NESA Region provides the ideal mix of community and commerce to enable the success and growth of your business. apolis Frankfort NESA Counties Chesterfield Darlington Dillon Florence Georgetown Horry Marion Marlboro Williamsburg Cleveland Columbus Charleston Philadelphia Pittsburgh Baltimore D.C.

It includes open and covered storage and an on-terminal CSX rail connection. 2 South Carolina s

3 A Highly Productive and Skilled Workforce South Carolina and the NESA Region have a strong history of agriculture and food processing excellence and are home to world class companies such as National Choice Bakery, Sopako, Popz, McLeod Farms, Perdue Farms, McCall Farms, Young Pecan, HJ Heinz and others. These companies have had no difficulty finding, recruiting and retaining talented and productive workers, technicians and management employees. With over one million people within sixty miles of the NESA Region s center, the region s workforce has been lauded as one of the top three most productive in the United States and the first in the Southeast. The labor force of more than 330,000 in the region has continued to increase exponentially in proportion with the region s increasing population. In the region there are over 12,600 workers employed by the agribusiness industry, which has annual sales of over $4 billion. Workforce Training The NESA Region has training resources available to you from recruiting and screening assistance to on the job training through ReadySC. SiMT The Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SiMT) is the first facility of its kind in the United States and provides the support needed by area and future industries to advance the region s ability to provide a highly trained workforce. Made possible by partnerships with businesses and industries, this facility features an Advanced Manufacturing Center, 3-D/ Virtual Reality Center and a National Robotics Center. SiMT offers open-enrollment, on-site and customized training as well as manufacturing startup assistance and consulting services. ReadySC ReadySC is an affiliate of the South Carolina Technical College System and develops, implements and manages custom workforce training programs, free of charge, to support new and existing businesses. By providing screening, recruiting and training of new employees, ReadySC is able to meet the staffing demands of new companies by providing a fully-trained workforce by the first day of operations.

4 A Thriving Business Environment Many successful, world-class businesses have already chosen to make their home in the NESA Region of South Carolina, and their increasing growth and revenue are a testimony to the area s potential. Because of the NESA Region s ideal location, diligent workforce, supportive government and easily accessible resources, area businesses have thrived and continue to do so. Utilities and Telecommunications Resources Not only does the NESA Region have a harmonious business environment, but it also has affordable utility and telecommunications support available. Electricity NESA realizes that having a reliable supply of electricity is a necessity for manufacturing operations. The counties that comprise the NESA Region are served by both Progress Energy and state-owned Santee Cooper via several customer-owned electric cooperatives. Electricity rates in South Carolina are nearly 20% below the national average. Many sites in the NESA Region are dual served sites. Uninterruptable power solutions (UPS) and backup power generation are available. Water and Sewer Most of the sites and buildings in the region have millions of gallons per day of excess capacity on both their water and wastewater systems. Some of our sites also sit atop aquifers which offer endless supplies of fresh water ideal for beverage formulation and food processing. High tolerance wastewater systems in South Carolina require less pre-treatment, resulting in lower operating costs for wastewater disposal. There is also a corporate income tax credit for up to 25% of the costs of complying with whole-effluent toxicity testing. Unused credits may be carried forward for 10 years. Permits Telecommunications & Fiber Optic Network The NESA Region is served by AT&T, Farmers Telephone Cooperative, Horry Telephone Cooperative, Time Warner Cable and Verizon. All of these providers offer fast and reliable fiber optic networks. Selfhealing networks are available for large industrial sites. SONET is available at many sites in the region and dedicated T-1 lines are available upon request. Major Agricultural and Food Processing Employers Carolina Plantation Rice East Coast Erosion Blankets H J Heinz Company House of Raeford Farms Hyman Vineyards McCall Farms McLeod Farms Monsanto Research Farm National Choice Bakery Perdue Farms Popz USA LLC Sopakco Prepared Foods Southern Nut Company Williamsburg Packing Company Young Pecan Company Environmental requirements are overseen by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), which seeks to work cooperatively with the state s business community while maintaining a safe environment. Less than 1% of environmental permits applied for in South Carolina are challenged. DHEC has the authority to implement federal permits in the state. Aware of the importance of new industry, DHEC gives priority to the review of new facilities, thus reducing the turnaround time for permit issuance. Permitting fees in South Carolina are comparable to those in most states. Local and regional agencies have not enacted local environmental compliance or permitting requirements with the exception of the standard local wastewater system use ordinances. South Carolina has no state law requiring the preparation of environmental impact statements. 4 South Carolina s
