Soon after, the industrial park's success began to gain attention and on April 5, 2001, South Carolina named a road near the facility, Haier Boulevard, in appreciation of the company's contributions to the state's economy.
COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION AWARD
In association with the park's influence, the city of Kershaw, South Carolina, awarded Haier the "2001 Community Contribution Award."
JOB CREATING AWARD
The industrial park, which employs almost 200 local residents, has had such a positive impact on the community, neighboring towns, and the state of South Carolina, that Haier has been recognized in many more ways. In 2002, the South Carolina Government granted Haier the "Job Creating Award."
