NESA region and manufacturing a good match

Today in Florence, the North Eastern Strategic Alliance (NESA) – a nine county regional economic development organization – hosted site selection consultant Woody Hydrick.

Hydrick specializes in finding sites for large-scale manufacturing facilities and has worked with companies such as Shell Oil and Pfizer.

Hydrick said that his company, Global Location Strategies located in Greenville, S.C., is running a number of projects in the Florence region and believes the region is a good fit for manufacturing.

Existing infrastructure and utilities are some of the region’s greatest assets according to Hydrick.
