Laurens County Branding

Laurens County is widely known for its proximity to major interstates, the SC inland port and the Upstate’s international airport. This, along with available land, low taxes and a qualified workforce makes Laurens County a logical location for industry and business. What is not often associated with Laurens County is the sense of community, small-town charm and abundant recreational opportunities. These things have remained a local secret for decades and, if developed and promoted correctly, could be enormous assets to attracting new businesses, residents and visitors.
