An estimated 1,500 new jobs will be created when technology-enabled sales and digital marketing company Red Ventures expands its operations into Lancaster County, South Carolina.
The $90 million investment will include a new facility dubbed RV4, which will be made up of three interconnected buildings. Those buildings will house a sales center, learning and development center, a six-story office tower and two parking decks.
“Attracting and retaining the best talent requires a purposeful -- and continued -- focus on creating an environment that celebrates collaboration, creativity and continued learning," Red Ventures CEO Rich Elias said. "This campus expansion and the amenities included, specifically the learning and development center, position us well to compete for and retain the best talent.”
Red Ventures is also planning to contribute to Lancaster County's infrastructure by building a new roadway from S.C. Highway 160 and widening Red Ventures Drive. The facility will also require new water, sewer and power supplies.
The projected completion date for the expansion is mid-2017.
Red Ventures began operations more than 15 years ago. In 2009, the company's headquarters were moved to Lancaster County from North Carolina.
“Lancaster County is excited to see the growth that Red Ventures has gone through over the short time that it has been in South Carolina," Lancaster County Council Chair Bob Bundy said. "We look forward to seeing this RV4 expansion and appreciate the continued investment in both capital and in the accompanying workforce."
The company employs more than 2,200 workers; with the expansion, that number will top 4,500. For more information on Red Ventures or to apply for employment, visit www.redventures.com.
