Economic Futures Group (EFG), formerly known as Spartanburg Economic Development Corporation, is working to drive the international business movement in the Southeast. With 80+ international firms representing 18 countries, including BMW, Milliken, Michelin, Cryovac, Kohler and Invista to name a few, it is only fitting that the New York Times reports Spartanburg, SC as having the highest per capita international investment in the nation. EFG’s target industries – automotive, plastics, metalworking and distribution – are reflective of existing industries as well as sectors expected to perform well economically in the area.

Spartanburg, uniquely situated at the crossroads of I-85 and I-26, is positioned to attract nationally recognized headquarters of companies such as Extended Stay America, Advance America, and Denny’s.  Clearly, business flourishes in this area as a result of the I-85 corridor, pro-business climate, cultural amenities and unparalleled quality of life-all located in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Quite naturally, the area is a prime destination for companies around the world.
