Aiken seems to be a roll right now.
Quote:
The county is working through three major unnamed projects Project Buy, Project Sand and Project Locker. AmbioPharm announcing yesterday they will be expanding their Aiken County operations. The expansion was previously under the code name of Project Buy.

AmbioPharm will have a $18.8 million investment, which the drug company hopes to create 100 new jobs in Aiken County over the next five years.

County Administrator Clay Killian says these jobs will not be blue collar jobs, but says they provide the county with a nice balance.

"In AmbioPharm's case they are highly-skilled, technical jobs, they pay that way too though," said Killian, "They are very well payed folks. It's something that we are always interested in, but the bottom line is if we can create jobs for our folks it makes the whole county better."

The other two secret projects in Aiken County, Project Locker and Project Sand, are set to bring jobs to the area as well.

Project Sand is expected to be a $30 million investment, but could create up to 80 full-time jobs in the county. Killian says this company is a long standing local company looking to expand its roots.

Project Locker is still being developed, but is not currently located in the area. Killian says these companies are taking local skills into consideration when they come to the area.

"There is a large movement towards technical skills and associate's degrees and manufacturing skills and welders and those kinds of jobs that pay very well, that you don't have to have a four year college degree for," said Killian.

It's from WRDW. They aren't exactly the pillars of proper grammar lately.
