SAIC Plans $28.5 Million Charleston Site

Defense contractor SAIC is planning a $28.5 million manufacturing campus that would create 200 jobs in Charleston, according to the Post and Courier.

The Post and Courier reports that the campus would be on a 23-acre site within the North Pointe Business Park, close to SAIC’s existing operations. The Berkeley County Council is due to vote on tax breaks for the facility on Feb. 26; the paper quotes Berkeley County’s economic development director, Barry Jurs, as saying that the site would result in 200 “very good-paying jobs.”

Technology firm SAIC (Science Applications International Corp.) was the lead company in a $237 million contract to develop a prototype for a next-generation combat vehicle for the Army last fall. SAIC is one of the largest technical service providers to the U.S. government and, the company states on its website, the prime contractor on 91 percent of premier federal contract vehicles. Last year, the Marine Corps also approved a proposal from SAIC to upgrade 25 amphibious assault vehicles, which are assembled at its existing Hanahan campus.
