Through this continued growth, the company expects to create 200 new jobs over the next five years. Governor Henry McMaster spoke during the event.

“The State of South Carolina is leading the way in industry growth, and announcements like this one by SAIC are proof of that. This innovative company could be investing anywhere in the world, yet they’ve chosen to strengthen their commitment to our state and its people. I wish them continued success for many years to come,” stated McMaster.
