Thousands Of Jobs Announced In Fort Mill And Chester County

Thousands of jobs were announced today in Fort Mill and Chester County.  Two of the three announcements involve companies moving from Charlotte to Fort Mill.  Independent broker LPL Financial says it plans to build a regional headquarters in Fort Mill.  The company will move about a 1,000 employees to the new location and says it plans to increase employment in Fort Mill to 3,000.  Also moving to Fort Mill is The Lash Group, a healthcare services provider.  That move is supposed to bring 2,400 jobs to York County over the next several years. Half of those positions are expected to be new. And Singapore tire maker Giti says it’s building its first North American plant in Chester County.  The company says it will create 1,700 jobs over the next decade as part of that expansion.
