S.C. Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt addressed Blythewood’s first Industry Appreciation Breakfast on Tuesday at The Manor. About 40 invited guests from area industries heard Hitt warn that when industry comes knocking, towns and counties must be ready if they are to attract the jobs. He also said companies locate in communities and look first at what those communities have to offer. “If you don’t have it,” Hitt said, “they’ll move on. You must be ready, have a plan and be flexible.” Hitt added that 70 percent of industries looking for locations want a ready building to move into. “If you’re not ready,” Hitt said, “you’ll miss out.”
