FROM THE PUBLISHER

I

was eating at a local Chinese restaurant recently and dinner ended with the always insightful message tucked into a fortune cookie. “Indulge your ambitious nature.” Whenever I receive a fortune that speaks to me, I keep it in my wallet for motivation. But this most recent fortune is now taped to my laptop, a daily reminder to keep moving forward, even in difficult times. I’ve always admired people with ambition, those who aren’t content with good enough. Ambition doesn’t guarantee success; in fact ambitious people often encounter many failures along the path to reaching their goals. That ambitious nature, however, is what inspires people to not give up, to keep fighting. The Upstate has a strong history of ambitious people at times struggling against the tide of others’ views on reasonable, feasible and possible. We continue to see the results of this drive in the Upstate, even over the past few years of enormous economic difficulties. Enterprising individuals have started new businesses. Companies have expanded operations and added staff. For some, profits are trending upward. Many of those successes are reflected in the companies and data in this year’s Book of Lists. You can also review some of these achievements in our newly added timeline (see page 6). Ambition often involves taking risks, going against the flow, and not giving up in the face of adversity. Ambition doesn’t come without hard work. Finding new clients, networking with the right contacts, connecting with others in the community, all key elements in finding success for any business, that is what the GSA Business Book of Lists is all about. Whether you are new to the Upstate market or an established business, the Book of Lists provides the resources for understanding the changes in the regional business scene and the data essential for facilitating those key connections. It is a true business-to-business tool that is easy to navigate and provides a wealth of information and statistics. Our staff ’s ambition to grow our annual Book of Lists is reflected with the addition of new sections, additional lists and section introductions written by our editor to provide additional insight into market trends. Thank you to all the companies that shared updated or new information with us this year. We strive to maintain accuracy and heavily rely on the cooperation of contributing businesses to provide us with the most accurate information available. We appreciate the time and effort. Ultimately, the accuracy and comprehensiveness of the lists is only as good as the information supplied by those who have chosen to participate. If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to visit our website www.GSABusiness. com to enter your company’s information. As a GSA Business subscriber, you receive this annual publication as part of your subscription. If you need additional copies, they can be purchased at our office, at 1204B Washington St. in Greenville or via our website, www.GSABusiness.com. The Book of Lists is also available, along with additional statewide lists, for purchase in PDF and excel format at http://www.scbiznews.com/data. This vital resource to the business community doesn’t happen without the support of our sponsors and advertisers. A special thank you to all, especially our title sponsors BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business, CertusBank and Upstate SC Alliance. Your continued support is vital and appreciated. As always, we invite your suggestions and contributions of information and ideas regarding the lists. Thank you for being a reader of GSA Business and on behalf of the entire GSA Business staff, we wish you continued success in the coming year. Lisa Jones

It’s a true partnership with our clients.”   GSA Business’ products include GSA Daily and GSA Morning Blend, two daily emails highlighting the day’s most impactful business news, as well as the biweekly print edition that provides in-depth looks at business trends and opportunities in the Upstate. “GSA readers use our biweekly publication and our online products to run their day-to-day businesses,” Edmonds says.  “We provide them with information relative

Clemson buoys research of Savannah River

once battered by the recession, auto dealers are now investing in expanded showrooms throughout the upstate. by Liz Segrist lsegrist@scbiznews.com

D&D Ford of Greer planned its expansion a decade ago. Then the recession hit. Auto sales plummeted. Automakers faced bankruptcy. Car brands disappeared. Dealerships closed. D&D stuck to its $7 million plan, however, and now other dealerships in the market are following suit. “It’s just ironic as we’re coming out of a recession that the economy seemed stable enough for us to carry out our plans,” said Skip Davenport, president and general manager of D&D Ford, which is building a new facility on Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greer. “It is very important to have up-

dated, renovated facilities to attract customers,” he said. “It’s not enough to have a new facility. You have to have it laid out efficiently to better care for your customers.” And following a few years of sluggish sales, customers are reappearing. Passenger-vehicle sales are up 14.8% nationwide through June, compared to the first half of 2011, according to Motor Intelligence, which is powered by Autodata Corp., a collector of automotive statistical data nationwide. This increase in sales and investment comes only a few years after many automakers were closing down dealerships. Chrysler closed 11 South Carolina dealerships in 2009, not including those in the Upstate, as part of its plan to close 789 dealerships nationwide. The last Saturn deal-

early 1,000 sensors encased in buoys will be dispensed in the Savannah River to collect data that could impact discussions of water quality and quantity, industry use and port expansions. The study, covering 312 river miles from the headwaters to the estuaries, is part of Clemson University’s Intelligent River Research program, an interdisciplinary research initiative that plans to implement a full-scale instrumentation of the Savannah River. The research and technology team wants to build an extensive technology and river monitoring system that can be replicated and applied at major rivers throughout the Southeast and the U.S. “This is the first really large scale effort to monitor an entire river base,” said Dr. Gene Eidson, the Institute of Applied Ecology director and head of the team. “If we’re successful, it really is a demonstration of our ability to transform how we monitor rivers that could significantly reduce the cost.” see RIVER, page 10

Sensors will collect the water quality data, which will be transmitted cellularly by the MoteStack, the small computer pictured. (Photo/firnFOTO)

once battered by the recession, auto dealers are now investing in expanded showrooms throughout the upstate. by Liz Segrist lsegrist@scbiznews.com

D&D Ford of Greer planned its expansion a decade ago. Then the recession hit. Auto sales plummeted. Automakers faced bankruptcy. Car brands disappeared. Dealerships closed. D&D stuck to its $7 million plan, however, and now other dealerships in the market are following suit. “It’s just ironic as we’re coming out of a recession that the economy seemed stable enough for us to carry out our plans,” said Skip Davenport, president and general manager of D&D Ford, which is building a new facility on Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greer. “It is very important to have up-

dated, renovated facilities to attract customers,” he said. “It’s not enough to have a new facility. You have to have it laid out efficiently to better care for your customers.” And following a few years of sluggish sales, customers are reappearing. Passenger-vehicle sales are up 14.8% nationwide through June, compared to the first half of 2011, according to Motor Intelligence, which is powered by Autodata Corp., a collector of automotive statistical data nationwide. This increase in sales and investment comes only a few years after many automakers were closing down dealerships. Chrysler closed 11 South Carolina dealerships in 2009, not including those in the Upstate, as part of its plan to close 789 dealerships nationwide. The last Saturn deal-

early 1,000 sensors encased in buoys will be dispensed in the Savannah River to collect data that could impact discussions of water quality and quantity, industry use and port expansions. The study, covering 312 river miles from the headwaters to the estuaries, is part of Clemson University’s Intelligent River Research program, an interdisciplinary research initiative that plans to implement a full-scale instrumentation of the Savannah River. The research and technology team wants to build an extensive technology and river monitoring system that can be replicated and applied at major rivers throughout the Southeast and the U.S. “This is the first really large scale effort to monitor an entire river base,” said Dr. Gene Eidson, the Institute of Applied Ecology director and head of the team. “If we’re successful, it really is a demonstration of our ability to transform how we monitor rivers that could significantly reduce the cost.” see RIVER, page 10

Sensors will collect the water quality data, which will be transmitted cellularly by the MoteStack, the small computer pictured. (Photo/firnFOTO)

once battered by the recession, auto dealers are now investing in expanded showrooms throughout the upstate. by Liz Segrist lsegrist@scbiznews.com

D&D Ford of Greer planned its expansion a decade ago. Then the recession hit. Auto sales plummeted. Automakers faced bankruptcy. Car brands disappeared. Dealerships closed. D&D stuck to its $7 million plan, however, and now other dealerships in the market are following suit. “It’s just ironic as we’re coming out of a recession that the economy seemed stable enough for us to carry out our plans,” said Skip Davenport, president and general manager of D&D Ford, which is building a new facility on Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greer. “It is very important to have up-

dated, renovated facilities to attract customers,” he said. “It’s not enough to have a new facility. You have to have it laid out efficiently to better care for your customers.” And following a few years of sluggish sales, customers are reappearing. Passenger-vehicle sales are up 14.8% nationwide through June, compared to the first half of 2011, according to Motor Intelligence, which is powered by Autodata Corp., a collector of automotive statistical data nationwide. This increase in sales and investment comes only a few years after many automakers were closing down dealerships. Chrysler closed 11 South Carolina dealerships in 2009, not including those in the Upstate, as part of its plan to close 789 dealerships nationwide. The last Saturn deal-

early 1,000 sensors encased in buoys will be dispensed in the Savannah River to collect data that could impact discussions of water quality and quantity, industry use and port expansions. The study, covering 312 river miles from the headwaters to the estuaries, is part of Clemson University’s Intelligent River Research program, an interdisciplinary research initiative that plans to implement a full-scale instrumentation of the Savannah River. The research and technology team wants to build an extensive technology and river monitoring system that can be replicated and applied at major rivers throughout the Southeast and the U.S. “This is the first really large scale effort to monitor an entire river base,” said Dr. Gene Eidson, the Institute of Applied Ecology director and head of the team. “If we’re successful, it really is a demonstration of our ability to transform how we monitor rivers that could significantly reduce the cost.” see RIVER, page 10

*Slope rating is a number ranging from 55 to 155 that represents the difficulty of a course for bogey golfers relative to the course rating. Slope rating is not expressed in strokes but, rather, is a ratio. The higher the slope, the more difficult the course plays for bogey golfers. A slope rating of 113 is considered average. **Course rating is the approximate number of strokes it should take scratch golfers to complete a course. INP=Information not provided.

REAL ESTATE & CONSTRUCTION Real estate sales and construction activity remain well below pre-recession figures, but steady gains have been seen in recent years. Residential construction permits in the Upstate increased more than 30% in 2012, for example, and several large mixed-use commercial developments are in the works. Statewide home sales were up more than 12% last year, a level exceeded by Greenville and Spartanburg.
