Camp Hall Ranks number 7 in Industrial Parks in the Nation
Camp Hall has recently been named the No. 7 best industrial park in the nation for the second year in a row in Business Facilities Magazine’s 17th annual Rankings Report, the magazine’s annual assessment of economic development and location leaders.
Camp Hall, which is located in Berkeley County, was the only park in the Southeast to make the list. The industrial park also earned the Palmetto Sites designation by the South Carolina Department of Commerce earlier this month, which signifies the property has undergone a comprehensive analysis to increase its marketability to prospective partners in the industry.
“We are proud Camp Hall has been recognized again as a top industrial park in the country,” Santee Cooper president and CEO Mark Bonsall said in a press release. “Camp Hall’s focus on the environment, workforce and technology make it a unique place where industries can thrive. And with infrastructure, technology, permits and approvals in place, Camp Hall is ready for business.”
Camp Hall was designed to support future operational needs for advanced industries like autonomous vehicles as well as supporting the growth of the Internet of Things (IOT). Camp Hall also has water, power, sewer and fiber all onsite, and gas underway.
Camp Hall says it remains committed to maintaining an environment that supports and encourages the natural habitat of coastal South Carolina. The industrial park reached a milestone in its wetland restoration efforts earlier this winter with the planting of 80,000 oak seedlings on 164 acres of the property Corporate Communications & Media Relations located at 1 Riverwood Drive, Moncks Corner, SC, 29461. The park says that an additional 300 acres will be prepared and planted with native hardwood seedlings within the next two years. Developed by Santee Cooper, Camp Hall is creating more than 15 miles of a multi-use trail system that will provide a place for the local workforce to walk, run and bike.
“Camp Hall’s approach centers on connectivity through blending ‘man, nature and machine,’ which goes hand in hand with our focus on the relationship between community, nature and technology,” said Dan Camp, Santee Cooper’s Senior Director of Real Estate and Camp Hall, in a press release. “We’re providing a place where businesses will reap the benefits of advanced connectivity, while their employees can enjoy recreation space and the trails on their lunch breaks while also accessing the amenities of the Village Center.”
Camp Hall’s Village Center will serve as the heart of the industrial park and will be home to several amenities such as a convenience store, places to eat and recreational space for employees. Santee Cooper is South Carolina’s largest power provider and the ultimate source of electricity for 2 million people across the state.
