COLUMBIA, S.C. – Thursday, April 26th.  The South Carolina Department of Commerce recognized PCI Group for its significant contributions to the community and state as part of its 27th annual, 2018 Industry Impact, Industry Appreciation series.  During the ceremony, PCI was recognized as a medium company award winner, which is based on employment size and tier group.

“In 2008, we made a strategic decision to relocate our business to Indian Land, SC.  It was a decision that proved to be vital to the success of our company.  The Lancaster County Council and Lancaster County Department of Economic Development (LCDED) have been extremely supportive of us and we feel very fortunate to operate our company in such a thriving business community”, said PCI Group Executive Vice President, Skip Pawul. He added, “We have worked hard to build our business and are honored to have been nominated by LCDED and recognized by the State of South Carolina with this award.

Each year, S.C. Commerce joins local communities to thank businesses for their vital contributions to South Carolina’s economy with an Industry Appreciation event. Nominees for this year’s Industry Impact awards were judged based on a number of factors, including capital investment, job creation, community engagement and environmental stewardship.

“South Carolina has developed a reputation around the world as a place that’s got it all, and that includes a workforce that can meet any challenge,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “These local business leaders from all across our state are what make South Carolina such a wonderful place to live, work, and play.”

“Team South Carolina is composed of countless moving parts and players, and we’re proud to recognize some of the companies that have made our state’s economy an international powerhouse,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “These recipients represent the workforce that has made our ongoing success possible.”
