Well, there was South Financial, then the new Distribution Center that we should hear more about soon, and now a current business in Greenville is expanding by 125 employees. Level One is about to double in size!

BSA's call center just off of Pleasantburg and I-385 is expected to add over 60 new jobs this year.

Also, United Parcel Service's call center in Greenville is expected to add over 100 new jobs this year.

Just thought I'd move this over here to get some sort of idea of growth and a total... :)

Is this the BSA as in "We don't make the light bulb, we make it brighter" "We don't make the jet ski, we make it faster", etc. Didn't know they had a presence here. Good news! :thumbsup:

I thought that was BSAF. :P I'm not sure what "BSA" is, myself. Anyone care to clue us in?

You're thinking of BASF? BSA is a call center for IBM.

More good news from today's Greenville News:

An automotive plant in the Matrix business park is planning to expand their workforce by 50 new jobs over the next 20 months! More good news for Southern Greenville County and the Matrix!!!

Here's the article:

So if I'm figuring right that is a net gain of over 1000 jobs in about 2 months.That is great for Greenville and the entire upstate.

The article on Cliffs at Mountain Park said that project would add over 900 jobs, but not sure I understand the breakdown. Did they roll construction jobs, golf course management (ongoing) and retail jobs from the village component together? Anybody have a more clear view of this?

I'm not sure but I think the jobs will be maintenance, landscaping, security,and workers for the golf shops . It should be interesting to see how things work out.This is very good for Greenville.

THIS IS AWESOME NEWS! There needs to be a good road, like an interstate, to connect Greenville with this area of the county. The article mentioned TR trying to keep the residents from going to Hendersonville and staying in SC... It'd be a great way to connect this area to downtown and would make it even more appealing! I don't know what, but there needs to be a road that has exits, not red lights that connects the two areas!

anyway, SC's largeset county just keeps getting larger and more jobs just keep coming! I LOVE IT!

Call me crazy, but maybe one reason why the whole Cliff's/northern Greenville area is so popular to the Gary Player's of the world is because there in not an interstate/freeway there.

I disagree there. A freeway does not necessarily mean major development will take over. As of today, U.S. 25 is a major truck route into and out of Greenville to the North. Everyone traveling to Asheville or the mountains beyond use 25 as well. It is just too bogged down and promotes more suburban sprawl. It would be nice to have a freeway with very few interchanges between TR and Hendersonville. Imagine how much faster trips to and from Asheville would be.

I really wouldn't hold your breath on Northern Greenville County residents, Congressman Inglis and Sen. DeMint pulling strings for federal highway money for that kind of freeway.

Nor does the SC DOT have those sort of resources right now.

Umm, if Charleston can get a bogus bridge, we can get a freeway. :angry:

Not only is Greenville getting new jobs, but I just heard that Spartanburg could be getting up to 1,300 new jobs from a company named EchoStar. The entire upstate is starting to jump on the bandwagon now. :thumbsup:

EchoStar is Dish Network. I wonder what they would be putting in Spartanburg?
