The Richland County Economic Development Office is pleased to announce that Scout Motors Inc. (“Scout”), makers of the next-generation of all-electric trucks and rugged SUVs, has decided to establish its manufacturing operations in Blythewood.
The company’s planned $2 billion investment has the potential to create 4,000 or more permanent jobs, both of which would set new all-time records for a Richland County economic development project.
