SC AUTOMOTIVE COUNCIL

AUTOMOTIVE DRIVEN

The South Carolina Automotive Council

is a division of the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance. The SCMA and SCAC foster collaboration, promote innovation, and advocate for a business environment conducive to growth and success in a global marketplace. Utilizing the resources, knowledge and infrastructure of the SCMA, the SCAC is able to effectively serves its members and community, recognizing the importance of the automotive industry to South Carolina’s economy.

Members of the SCAC have access to programs, services, events and resources specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of the automotive industry. Input from the SCAC membership and  leadership shapes the organization’s activities and initiatives.

The catalyst

for the SCAC’s formation involved a strategic, collaborative effort among the S.C. Manufacturers Alliance, the Upstate SC Alliance and AdvanceSC.

The concept

of the SCAC developed over the past several years as manufacturing leaders from across the state recognized the need for an automotive-sector specific forum to enhance its position within South Carolina’s economy, to encourage dialogue, and to advocate for policies that will foster growth and prosperity for automotive-related manufacturers. Automotive manufacturers have many issues and challenges in common with other manufacturing sectors, but there are areas of interest unique to automotive manufacturing which demand sector-specific focus.

The SCAC leadership

recognizes the importance of the “Southern Automotive Corridor” and has actively engaged other Southeastern automotive organizations to ensure a collective and aggressive approach to advancing the entire region.

The SCAC established its office on the campus of Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) and has full-time staff in place to serve the members and implement programs and initiatives throughout South Carolina and the Southeast.
