Throughout 2017, SCIRPDC have been developing a new Regional Industry Cluster Analysis for the five-county SCIRPDC area. Industry clusters are simply groups of geographically bounded inter-related firms that together represent the entire value chain of a specific industry from suppliers, to final products, as well as everything in between.
The purpose for analyzing these regional clusters of related industry firms is threefold:
- To assess regional economic strengths and assets;
- Increase regional economic knowledge in order to promote collaborative discussions; and
- Assist in developing local and regional plans and strategies for expanding the regional economy.
It is our hope that this information will be invaluable to regional stakeholders and their continued efforts for sustainable community and economic development.
