Will Tech Firms Relocate to Chapin, SC?


For years, the Chapin area has promoted itself as a place to live, work and play. Being near the shores of Lake Murray, the Chapin area has capitalized on the “live” and “play” parts of the slogan. And now it’s time to hone in on the “work.”

That will happen when construction gets underway on a 220-acre industrial park Lexington County is developing on Columbia Avenue (S.C. Highway 48), near the Interstate 26 interchange.

In addition, the Mungo Co. is planning a 200-acre residential and commercial complex adjacent to the industrial park.

“I think certainly this will be a game changer for the community,” Chapin Mayor Stan Shealy said of the twin projects. Work on the $13 million industrial park’s infrastructure could begin as early as the third quarter of this year, with a road completed in the next 18 months, said County Council Vice Chairman Johnny Jeffcoat, who heads the council’s economic development committee.
