Press Release

Florence, S.C.—Rep. Tom Rice (SC-07) released the following statement today in regards to the expansion of Harbor Freight Tools and their $60 million dollar investment in South Carolina’s 7th Congressional District:

“I was thrilled to learn that Harbor Freight Tools has decided to expand in our district.  This is good news for everyone- for Dillon County, Marion County, Marlboro County, the 7th district, and for South Carolina.   This $60 million dollar investment in our community is a multi-county initiative and will create as many as 200 jobs, will spur economic growth, and bring an influx of capital to the district.  I am proud to represent a right-to-work state that is consistently attracting new business and will continue to do so because South Carolinians, our business community, and our state’s leaders all share the same free market values. 

“I will continue to encourage our pro-business climate and will continue to do everything I can to grow our community, create more jobs, and attract new business because when one community thrives, the entire state thrives.  Thank you Harbor Freight Tools for your investment in Dillon, Marlboro, and Marion Counties; in our district; and in our state.”
