With over 363,000 square feet of multi-use warehouse and office space, the Center for Business and Entrepreneurial Development (“Center”), located at the Spartanburg Community College (SCC) Tyger River Campus in Duncan, is the fourth largest business incubator in the United States. Serving small to large companies through a variety of specialized programs, the Center has become a model of success for attracting and launching technology and manufacturing related businesses, as well as increasing economic development and employment in Spartanburg County.

“The Center has served over 25 companies since 2006 and has assisted in the creation of over 3,900 jobs, approximately $200 million in company earnings, and over $10 million in combined income and sales tax revenue for the state,” said Mike Forrester, SCC’s executive assistant to the president and director of economic development. “The Center has proven to be a valuable resource for start-up companies, industry and our community.”

The largest business incubator facility in the nation is the Batavia Industrial Center in New York with 950,000 square feet, followed by the BioSquare in Boston with 700,000 square feet and then the Fulton-Carroll Center in Chicago, housing 400,000 square feet of space. According to National Business Incubation Association Publications’ 2012 State of the Business Incubation Industry, large incubators like these are the exception rather than the norm, with only eight percent of all incubation programs reporting to have facilities larger than 100,000 square feet. However, business incubator programs are on the rise with approximately 1,400 in operation in North America in 2012, compared to 1,100 in 2006.

SCC’s Center offers start-ups and established companies assistance in four key areas: incubator services, soft landings, workforce employment services and special projects. Participating companies can utilize the Center’s services or space for up to a year at no cost, other than utilities, if they agree to establish a permanent location within Spartanburg County. The Center offers them office and warehouse space, specialized training, technical support, market research, industry expert mentors, and cultural support for international companies. The Center is also located in a foreign trade zone, which allows companies to produce goods without the associated customs duties and related taxes.

The Center is currently serving the following companies:

  • A.L. Industries, an Israeli company that manufactures automotive air filters, is developing their first U.S. manufacturing operations.
  • Benore Logistics IT provides IT support for the Just-In-Time delivery for parts and supplies for BWM.
  • Core Care Wellness is launching a new technology product that helps to ensure that Medicare patients receive annual wellness exams while also improving patient care and saving health care providers time and money.
  • EchoStar is currently utilizing space to store equipment they will use to upgrade their operations.
  • Edgewater Automation designs and builds custom automation equipment for assembly and test applications.
  • Jeffreys Manufacturing has two show rooms in the Center for their OKK CNC machines and HAAS CNC Machines, which SCC students and instructors also use to train on.
  • Motion Mekanix is a global leader in automation engineering that provides programming, consulting and training for a wide range of robots and applications.
  • Trimite is using the Center’s warehouse space to store new equipment to up fit an expansion of their facility.

Previous clients of the Center include Adidas, Amazon, BMW, Jankel Tactical Systems, Master Precision Global and Walmart, among others.

An eight-month program held at the Union County Advance Technology Center offers students career basics as well as employment opportunities after the course is completed.

The class is offered through the ACHIEVE (Academic Challenges Helping Individuals Expand Values and Education) program and is held every Thursday for an eight-month period. All students enrolled in the class have either earned their GED or are currently working on it.

The class began with a seven-week course called Smart Work Ethics where students participated in team building and intensive training in soft skills. They even created their own button pins to wear with their slogan being, “Forget the sky. There is no limit.”

From there, they began their NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) core curriculum training at Union County Advanced Technology Center through Spartanburg Community College Corporate & Community Education.
