Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) and Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statements regarding the recent announcement that the TTX Company added 200 new jobs to the area:

Wilson stated, "The recent announcement of job creation by the TTX Company is great news for Aiken County. Adding 200 more jobs to its current operation in North Augusta shows the company’s commitment to the Central Savannah River Area. This news proves yet again why South Carolina provides an ideal environment for large employers. The combination of low taxes, right-to-work protections, worker training, and less regulatory red tape are all factors that give the Palmetto State a competitive advantage."     

Duncan added, "A business environment that fosters certainty in the economy is critical for job creation. South Carolina’s efforts to protect worker’s rights by combating big labor, addressing frivolous lawsuits, and eliminating excessive regulations will spur more investments like TTX in the state. As a former small-business owner, I know all too well how damaging government red tape can be for job creation. I’m excited that TTX has continued to invest and create jobs here in the Palmetto State."
