elcome to GSA Business’ 2011 Book of Lists, the annual compendium of facts, figures and contacts about the businesses that make up the Upstate business community. When South Carolina is one of eight states with unemployment 10% or higher, it’s difficult to come to grips with the fact that 2010 was a year of recovery and growth. The year was, at best, difficult for most businesses. The good news is that 2011 seems to be shaping into a year of perseverance, innovation and investment making for a much more robust business community. The campus of Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research is taking shape. Sage Automotive Interiors Inc., formerly the automotive body cloth division of Milliken Co., will move into a new headquarters in June. Later this year, Proterra Inc. will break ground on a 240,000-square-foot manufacturing and research development center. There were 4,200 industrial jobs announced in the Upstate in 2010. In addition to growth in the advanced materials, automotive, energy and bioscience sectors, the Upstate’s traditional “can do” spirit continues to shine through entrepreneurism and a growing small business community. From October 2009 to October 2010, employment in South Carolina grew in the professional business service sector by 4.2%, outpacing the national average of 2.2%. This year’s Book of Lists has also grown with the addition of new lists and a new Industrial/ Manufacturing section. To help you quickly locate the information you need, the layout and design of the sections include color-coded tabs to identify where sections start and finish, and have section titles at the top of each page and on the tab for easy navigation. The Book of Lists is a valuable resource for those looking to generate sales leads, to gauge strengths and weaknesses in the marketplace, and become better acquainted with businesses in the Upstate. Each list includes contact names, telephone numbers and web addresses, as well as other data such as revenues and employment figures. It is a true businessto-business tool that is easy to navigate and provides a wealth of information and statistics. I want to express my appreciation to all the businesses in this year’s Book of Lists. Your cooperation is essential to the accuracy and completion of each list. While the the Book of Lists comes out just once a year, you have the opportunity to update your information online at www.gsabusiness.com under the “Resources” tab. It’s also where you can find this robust data resource in an electronic version where lists can be viewed or downloaded in Excel or PDF formats. 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 out title sponsors BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, Godshall Professional Recruiting and Staffing and Upstate SC Alliance. Your continued support of GSA Business is paramount. Last, but not least, many thanks to Research and Events Coordinator Elizabeth Feather for sending surveys, fact-checking and assembling the data into what is one of our largest Book of Lists ever. On behalf of the entire GSA Business staff, I hope the 2011 Book of Lists continues to be a useful and essential part of your business, and we welcome your feedback on ways we can improve it for 2012. Lisa Jones

In 1986, the population of Greenville County was 304,000.

Today, it’s 451,000. In 1986, the population of Erwin-Penland was 2.

Today, it’s 262. (Apparently, growth is contagious here.) Erwin-Penland is celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, and it’s no coincidence that our growth has mirrored that of our community. While we have become one of the largest and most sought-after agencies in the south, Greenville has become one of the fastest growing and most sought-after communities in the region as well.

To all of you who have been with us from the beginning, to those of you who have played a role in shaping our agency and our community, and to those who are here today continuing to help our agency and Greenville thrive, we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

You make a great advertisement for our community.

CHANGE = GROWTH At Scott and Company LLP, we believe that change is a necessary part of growth. We have made some changes around here. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subtle... but we recently changed our name from Scott McElveen, L.L.P. to Scott and Company LLP. Besides the name change, we have grown to seven partners in our firm. While good, solid numbers are essential to an accounting firm, we feel saying Scott and Company LLP is a lot easier than saying Scott, Howard, Mobley, Price, West, Perricelli and Slapnik. In addition to our new partners, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also expanded the firm, having recently opened a new office in Greenville, SC. While this growth is exciting, we understand the power of good, solid accounting practices and hold strong that our clients and their needs will always remain our top priority.

Target Industry Study In November 2009, the Upstate SC Alliance unveiled its Target Industry Study. The strategy put forth in the study represents a broad, collaborative effort to supercharge the region’s economy over the next five years. It calls for heighted concentration of efforts and a holistic focus on a handful of target industries that will maximize the Upstate’s economic development. As a result, the Upstate will emerge as a highly sought after, international destination for its target industries.

Automotive Campaign Advanced Materials Campaign

Biosciences Campaign

Core Marketing: Sell Overall Upstate Assets

Energy Campaign

The Upstate SC Alliance has embarked on a new strategy, focused on four new target industries. For the Upstate to fully realize the true benefits of this strategy, we must seek to substantially increase our marketing budget over the next 5 years allowing for an increase in our internal and external marketing efforts. We encourage you to join the ranks of these organizations and help support this region’s positive development. With your full support, we will more than triple the number of prospects brought to the ten counties annually. Together we can build awareness of the Upstate’s many assets and ultimately stimulate job creation and new investment.

Fluor’s mastery of wind power yields European projects

CHANGE

by James T. Hammond jhammond@scbiznews.com

Greenville and South Carolina have a growing cluster of expertise in harnessing the wind. GE Energy makes electric generators driven by windmills capable of lighting a small town. Fluor Corp. builds wind farms that stand like centurions at sea and pour out enough power for a city. Three companies in S.C. make bearings for the huge machines. Wind turbines utilize free energy, and emit no harmful carbon pollutants. The American Wind Energy Association estimates U.S. wind power capacity will grow 20%, or 5,000 megawatts, this year alone. Demand for this new-technology hardware will preserve jobs, or even increase employment in the Upstate.

WINDS OF

n the next 20 years, worldwide electricity demand is expected to double, and the world’s largest gas turbine plant, operated by General Electric on Garlington Road in Greenville, is retooling itself to meet a diverse set of global needs, including wind power generators. Already one of every two wind turbines in the United States today is made by GE. Last year, GE Energy built 604 of the 60-ton wind turbine machine heads in Greenville. (The blades are made elsewhere.) see GE, page 16

luor Corp. saw the potential of wind power early in the technology’s development, and set out to become a major player for renewable sources of energy. “We saw the potential in this technology six or seven years ago,” said David Eppinger, vice president in the power division at Fluor. “We believed it would yield projects of the size and complexity that Fluor is known to execute very well.” Today, the engineering and conEppinger struction company that employs more than 2,500 professionals in Greenville is the prime contractor for the world’s largest wind turbine project under construction – the Greater Gabbard Offshore Farm near Britain’s Suffolk coast. The giant turbines will occupy a hostile, corrosive environment of saltwater, waves and storms, while resting on pylons in water as deep as 100 feet. Despite those challenges, the service life of each of the high-tech windmills is expected to be 20-25 years. The $2 billion-plus, 500-megawatt complex is expected to be 20 miles or more from shore, minimizing visual and noise objections from neighbors. The 140 windmills will stand on 260-foottall towers and have three-bladed rotors that are more than 300 feet in diameter. Siemens Wind Power A/S will build turbines for the British project. Each one will pump out 3.6 megawatts of see PROJECTS, page 13
