“We saw a major decline in textiles throughout the nineties and really because of that a decrease in manufacturing through 2007, even though automotives were coming on with the arrival of BMW in 1994,” University of South Carolina Moore School of Business  Professor Joseph Von Nessen said. “Now, we’re beginning to see gains since 2010 as the automotive cluster and as more advanced manufacturing industries have begun taking off.”
