We feel fortunate to be a part of this community and add value any way possible.”
“I worked for Springs Industries in Chester when I was a young man. It was hard but rewarding work,” said Dr. Wylie Frederick, supervisor, Chester County. “The factories closed as did many other industries. I am always gratified to see these former industrial buildings refurbished to support the growth of new companies, such as Unique Loom. They are a great company, and we are excited to see them growing and creating high quality jobs here in Chester County. Growth and expansion usually mean the company is satisfied to be here in Chester and that the company is prospering.”
“Chester County is a great location for e-commerce companies, such as Unique Loom,” said Robert Long, director, Chester County Economic Development. “With our location between Charlotte and Columbia, we offer great access to talent. We have a robust transportation network that includes the Highway 9 corridor and Interstate 77, and our proximity to the Port of Charleston is essential to Unique.”
