Gov. Sanford Issues Statement on Boeing Announcement
Governor Mark Sanford today issued the following statement on Boeing's announcement that they will purchase Vought Aircraft Industries' North Charleston facility:
"Boeing's announcement today is a real testament to the dedicated work of our economic development teams at the state and local levels, and it's also a testament to the workforce and business climate of South Carolina that a world-class company like this is choosing to expand its presence here," Gov. Sanford said.
"This in many ways has been a project years in the making, and accordingly I would give credit to former Secretary of Commerce Bob Faith and his team for their pursuit of the original $560 million investment. In that same vein, I'd give real credit to Joe Taylor and his current team at Commerce for the way they've continued to cultivate this business relationship."
"Our administration is equally committed to doing whatever we can to help Boeing succeed and grow in our state," Gov. Sanford said.
