Red Ventures announced today that it has purchased 16 acres of land that will be used to expand its existing Indian Land headquarters in Lancaster County.
The Internet marketing and sales company said the expansion is expected to generate 1,000 new jobs over the next five years.
“The next few years will be full of challenges and opportunities and we are hoping to double the size of our current workforce,” said Red Ventures CEO Ric Elias. “This additional land will allow us to grow, while also maintaining the unique, employee-friendly environment we’ve created.”
The company employed 300 when it moved to South Carolina in 2009, and is now approaching 1,000 employees. Red Ventures expects to grow 30% in 2012.
The new space also will give the company the opportunity to expand its employee amenities, which already include: an indoor basketball court, walking/running track, fitness center, locker rooms, putting green and a cafe with subsidized meals.
“It’s great to see a high-tech company like Red Ventures grow and add to its payroll in South Carolina. Our state’s business-friendly climate and strong workforce talent continue to help draw new job-creating investments like this one,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
Red Ventures employs a total of 1,500 across its locations in Miami, San Antonio, Indian Land and Wilmington, N.C.
