“There are more people working in South Carolina than even before, and that is thanks in no small part to companies like 9 Round, Swampfox Technologies, JEAR Logistics, and the other 2019 SC Fastest Growing award winners. I congratulate them all and wish them many more successful years here in the Palmetto State.” Governor Henry McMaster.

“In addition to hiring people and paying taxes, people who build small businesses often become leaders in their communities. They have a vested interest in their local community’s success because it is often interconnected with their company’s ability to grow and prosper. I congratulate these South Carolina companies being honored today for the positive impact they are having on our state and wish them continued growth and success in the future.” Curtis Loftis State Treasurer.
