SC loses to neighbor in competition for Computer Maker

News Release – For Immediate Release
Contact: Lachlan McIntosh (803) 799-7798

North Carolina Governor Mike Easley announced today that Lenovo, a Chinese computer
maker, will invest $84 million to build a new research and development center in Morrisville, North Carolina.  Within the next five years, the center will create hundreds of new jobs at an average salary of $70,000 per year.  Eventually, the facility will employ 2,200 people. 

According to published reports, the company chose North Carolina over South Carolina
and Virginia. 

South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Joe Erwin made the following statement concerning Sanford’s latest failed attempt to lure industry to the Palmetto State.

“It is past time for Governor Sanford to admit that he needs help bringing new jobs to our state. Instead of lashing out at his critics, he needs to reach out for assistance from people who have experience in luring industry here.”

“We have the slowest job growth rate and one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation and Mark Sanford continues to lose these battles.”
