Economic Development

At Comporium, we believe in taking a proactive role in local and state economic development and working hand-in-hand with our local chambers of commerce, aiding them in creating an environment that helps to grow business.. We endeavor to add value to our service areas by constantly working to ensure that we offer the most current, most competitive, and most innovative products that we can.

Knowledge Park - Knowledge Park will be the dynamic center of Rock Hill’s 21st century economy. Designed to be home to knowledge economy businesses and jobs, it is technologically advanced, yet rooted in the city’s rich history. Knowledge Park is supported by private/public partnership between the City of Rock Hill and local business leaders. When completed, it will offer an appealing urban lifestyle built upon a model of economic and environmental sustainability.

Knowledge Park is located in Rock Hill, South Carolina which is located in the north-central area of South Carolina, approximately 20 miles south along the I-77 corridor from Charlotte, North Carolina. Knowledge Park measures abut one square mile. It stretches from the Old Town East development at Elizabeth Lane to Winthrop University at Cherry Road. Major landmarks and businesses located within the Knowledge Park include City Hall, Winthrop University, The Cotton Factory, and Comporium Communications.



Comporium assists local economic development organizations by providing them with necessary tools and resources to educate prospective business on the value of living in an area served by Comporium. We also routinely help fund business initiatives in our service areas that generate jobs, create a more business friendly environment, and attract new residents to the area. See All >

"Every year we strive to make a difference in our communities."

Comporium Pioneers

The Comporium Pioneer Club is part of a national organization, the Independent Telecommunications Pioneer Association. The Comporium club is made up of approximately 240 individuals from the Fort Mill, Rock Hill, and Lancaster areas who are employed in or retired from the telecommunications industry.

The mission of the pioneer club is to preserve the history, traditions, and ideals of the Independent Telecommunications Industry and to initiate and carry out activities that are considered to be of a social, community, or welfare nature.

Comporium realizes that being a good corporate citizen is good business, and that our business and social goals must be compatible for us to remain a responsible role model for all employers within the communities we serve. We focus our giving on projects and organizations that serve a broad sector of the community, multi-community projects that have a multiplier effect by benefiting local organizations in more than one location, organizations that provide direct services to their client populations, and projects and organizations with a proven record of success.

Each year Comporium donates over $400,000 directly to local non-profits. We do this through a combination of monetary gifts, in-kind donations of services, or through the donation of surplus vehicles and goods. We also work with several local charities on employee matching programs, yielding greater benefits from the generosity of our employees.

Funding decisions are based on available financial, material, and personnel resources and the proposal’s qualifications as compared to Comporium’s charitable guidelines.
