ScanSource Continues to Invest in Greenville County Headquarters

Company investing $6 million to expand headquarters location at its Logue Court property

GREENVILLE, SC – October 26, 2015 – The Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC), the County-chartered organization tasked with advancing the area’s economic growth, announced today that ScanSource, Inc.(NASDAQ:SCSC), the leading international value-added distributor of specialty technology products, is expanding its headquarters location in Greenville County. The public company is investing more than $6 million in the project and creating 100 new jobs in Greenville, SC over the next five years.

Approximately 650 employees work at the corporate headquarters campus at Logue Court off Pelham Road in Greenville. The newly announced expansion will convert approximately 30,000 square feet of warehouse space into office space for a growing sales force and support staff.

“ScanSource is a sterling example of a growing company that is committed to the Greenville County community,” said GADC President and CEO Mark Farris. “Because of this relationship, the company is able to recruit and retain talented individuals who are helping it succeed in its mission. The County, in turn, is able to respond to ScanSource’s need to lower costs of operation while maintaining a pro-business environment.”

ScanSource has expanded its current headquarter campus location five times over the past 10 years, ultimately occupying over 175,000 square-feetin two buildings on more than 24 acres on Pelham Road. Likewise, each time ScanSource expands beyond South Carolina and the U.S., it has a positive impact on new jobs in the Upstate, as many support functions for the global corporation are provided in Greenville.

Locally in Greenville and statewide, ScanSource has an estimated economic impact of more than $20 million annually. This includes major contributions to education and other philanthropic causes, sales transactions with local businesses, and the financial impact of bringing visitors to the area for conferences and meetings.

The Greenville expansion project is expected to be complete over the next five years. For more information about ScanSource, visit
