South Carolina governor Mark Sanford, and Lindsey Graham, one of the state’s two U.S. senators, have made the trip to Farnborough to help the South Carolina Department of Commerce (in the U.S. Pavilion, Hall 3 Stand B3) and local economic developers attract more aerospace investment to their sunny, southern state.
South Carolina is already home to “more than 160 aerospace-related companies, which employ more than 18,000 workers,” according to officials. Among these companies are GE Aviation, which in April inaugurated its high-pressure turbine-blade factory in Greenville, and Boeing, which in 2009 chose North Charleston as the location for its second 787 final assembly line.
