Whether it's the business friendly county government and administration, the top quality education and training opportunities, or the highly-skilled, technical workforce, business and community leaders are raving about doing business in Pickens County, South Carolina.
"Tri Tech USA, Inc. relocated to Pickens County Commerce Park from South Burlington, VT in October 2009. As a small family owned manufacturing business, this was probably one of the most important business decisions of our lives. We could have moved our business anywhere and we were considering several locations. We didn’t know much about South Carolina, and even less about Liberty, SC. Alliance Pickens, through Ray Farley, convinced us that Pickens County Commerce Park in Liberty was the right fit for our business and our employees. By pulling together area business people, educators, banks, realtors, builders, architects, community leaders and a host of others Ray provided us with the information we needed to make our decision and helped us locate the resources and tools to make it happen. The diligence and hard work of Alliance Pickens made the challenges of moving our business much smoother than they otherwise might have been. We are delighted to be part of the Pickens County community

"Without Alliance Pickens assisting us with our employee recruitment and job fair presentations we would not be as competitive in the workplace as we are today. Their past and continued efforts to connect us with Tri-County Technical College and Pickens County Career & Technology Center and Pickens County's top ranked schools will ensure future generations of our workforce to be available."
Tim Hendricks - Vice-President - Advanced Machine Works, Inc.
"From the moment that we contacted Alliance Pickens about locating an operation in Pickens County, we were overwhelmed by their response. Ray and his team helped us locate a building, provided us with the skilled labor data that we required and even ensured building permits were expedited. In fact, Pickens County turned our building permit in less than one day! We considered a number of communities as the home for our new facility, but the support offered by Alliance Pickens made our choice to locate in Pickens County an easy one."

We were very impressed with number of resources that Alliance Pickens made available and I have no doubt that their help saved our company both time and money."
