On behalf of the State of South Carolina, it is my pleasure to present to you the South Carolina Minority Business Directory.
Small business is the backbone of South Carolina's economy, employing two-thirds of the state's workforce. This directory is designed to help you identify hundreds of small minority businesses that can help you provide quality services at competitive prices, while expanding your influence in new markets. By referring work to small businesses, you are supporting South Carolina's economic development potential and getting the best service possible. Each business listed was built on a foundation of hard work and innovation. I urge you to browse through this directory and get to know the companies that are eager to become part of your workforce.
If my office can be of assistance, please call the Office of Small and Minority Business Assistance at 734-0657. I hope this directory will be a valuable resource and that you will always feel free to call on me if ever the need arises.
The Governor's Office of Small and Minority Business Assistance (OSMBA) was created by Executive Order in October 1979. Enabling legislation was passed and the program was placed into law as outlined in Article 21, Section 11-35-5010 of the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1981. The goals of OSMBA are to promote the growth and development of small and minority owned businesses in South Carolina and to advocate that an equitable portion of State procurement contracts be awarded to small and minority owned businesses.
