Time Warner Announces Palmetto State Expansion
CABLE AND INTERNET PROVIDER TO CREATE 650 NEW JOBS IN SOUTH CAROLINA
Time Warner Cable is investing $24 million and adding nearly 650 new jobs at its West Columbia, S.C. location, the S.C. Department of Commerce announced this week.
“Even in a recovering economy, Time Warner Cable continues to grow and is pleased to offer valuable, good paying jobs in Columbia,” a company executive said. “The addition of 644 jobs, which increases our South Carolina workforce by more than 50 percent, emphasizes our strong commitment to South Carolina.”
The news is the Palmetto State’s first big jobs announcement of 2013 – although Commerce’s official release declined to disclose whether taxpayer-funded incentives were used to lure the new positions. Nonetheless, a scandal-weary S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley welcomed the news …
“We celebrate the company’s decision to expand with a $24 million investment and 644 new jobs in West Columbia,” Haley said. “While we work to bring new companies to South Carolina, it speaks to the strength of our state’s business-friendly climate when existing businesses like Time Warner Cable succeed and grow.”
Time Warner says the new jobs will be filled within the year. Anyone interested in applying for one of the new positions should visit the company’s careers website at http://jobs.timewarnercable.
