Financial services and technology company LPL Financial will be moving into its new Fort Mill, South Carolina headquarters this coming October.
Development on the site began early 2015, and the space provides the perfect venue for LPL to fulfill its vision of the new campus. The site will boast modern features such as a rainwater recycling system that will not only reduce operating costs but will also benefit the environment.
Previously headquartered in Charlotte with 1,500 employees, LPL’s move to South Carolina is providing the company with opportunity for incredible and rapid growth. At the Fort Mill campus, LPL plans to double its number of employees to 3,000, which will make the location the largest of the company’s offices nationwide.
The business-friendly climate in South Carolina was a major factor in LPL’s decision to expand to the state, and the I-77 area provides access to a large skilled workforce and high quality of life. The new headquarters will be in York County, South Carolina.
The state provides a range of incentives to business looking to grow and expand in the area, further demonstrating its commitment to helping companies succeed in South Carolina. South Carolina is providing $2 million in financial support for LPL and its Fort Mill campus development, and the state will also provide the company with tax credits as it hires new employees.
LPL’s expansion in South Carolina marks a strategic point in the company’s growth: the pro-business climate of the state paired with all that York County and the I-77 Alliance region has to offer makes it a solid choice for growth!
