NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.-Vapor Apparel makes the list of award recipients from the South Carolina Department of Commerce. The Southeastern apparel manufacturer was recognized at the department’s 26th Annual Industry Impact Awards held on May 11 in Columbia, South Carolina. The yearly event recognizes businesses in the state that contribute to the local and regional economy.
“South Carolina continues to have one of the most pro-business climates in the world, and this couldn’t be possible without the partnerships we’ve forged with companies both large and small,” says Governor Henry McMaster, in a release on the department’s website. “These local businesses and their leaders form the backbone of our state’s economy, and I congratulate them on this deserved recognition.”
The department judges businesses based on criteria including capital investment, job creation, community engagement, and environmental stewardship. Governor McMaster presented the award to Vapor Apparel staff at the May 11 ceremony.
“We are building a team that spans from Charleston to Union,” says Jackson Burnett, president of Vapor Apparel. “That team is focused on delivering the digital print-on-demand solutions of tomorrow.”
Vapor says it anticipates further growth as it continues to invest in automation technology and focus on product offerings for printers, brands, organizations, events, and consumers.
News of the award comes as the latest distinction for the company by South Carolina organizations. In fall of 2016, Vapor made the SCBiz magazine’s list of fastest-growing companies in the state.
