MBREDC Industry Awareness Class continues visits throughout Horry County

The MBREDC continues visits of industries throughout Horry County, learning about and spreading an awareness of the industries that are thriving here in our county. As a resource and supporter of our existing industries, the MBREDC hopes that this awareness will strengthen the availability of workforce for these companies. Each industry visited has available jobs that are full time, year round, and offer benefits along with competitive salaries.

During the month of February, the class visited CRP, Worksman Cycles, Duplicates INK, Horry County Government, Tara Grinna, and HTC.

If your business is one of the over 200 existing industries in Horry County and would like to offer information and a tour for future classes, contact Sandra James.
