Dorchester County announced nine different business projects and expansions totaling more than $406 million in investment in 2022. Those are record breaking numbers according to the county.
The previous best years of 2017 and 2019 each boasted six projects. The $406 million in investment beat the previous total investment year on record by $84 million.
