Google Expanding Operations in Berkeley CountyMar 18, 2021 12:40PM ● By David Dykes
Google has confirmed plans to expand its Berkeley County operations, a move projected to bring more than $500 million in capital investment to the Lowcountry, according to company and state officials.
“Google has been proud to call Berkeley County home for more than a decade. Our additional investment of $500 million in the state brings our total South Carolina investment to $2.9 billion," said Lilyn Hester, Google's head of Southeast public affairs. "We look forward to continuing to make an impact.”
“We are thrilled that Google is once again choosing to expand its operations in Berkeley County," said Gov. Henry McMaster. "For more than a decade, Google has been a significant member of our business community, and this $500 million investment builds upon their commitment to South Carolina.”
Located at Mount Holly Commerce Park in Moncks Corner, Google’s investment will expand the company’s data center and overall footprint in Berkeley County, South Carolina Department of Commerce officials said.
Google established operations in South Carolina in 2007.
“When a company like Google not only decides to locate in South Carolina, but also builds upon that, it sends a message to the entire world that the Palmetto State is open for business," said S.C. Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. "The commitment that this $500 million investment represents is extremely important to our state, and we could not be more excited for Google and what the future has in store for them.”
