Provalus Locates Operations Center in Manning, South Carolina

Provalus, an information technology support company, plans to establish operations in downtown Manning, South Carolina. The company’s new technology innovation center is creating 105 jobs in Clarendon County.

Located at 34 North Brooks Street in Manning, Provalus’ new innovation center will expand the company’s domestic services for business process outsourcing, formation technology outsourcing and support. This is the third facility to open in just two years of business for Provalus. The company’s other two locations in Alabama and Texas are on target to employ over 500 newly-trained IT professionals.

“We’re on a mission to bring jobs back to the U.S. Provalus is not only solving the tech talent shortage in America, it’s also giving families an opportunity to improve their livelihoods,” said Provalus President Chuck Ruggiero.

"When opportunities like these become available, communities must be ready, not get ready. The city of Manning purchased the former Belk building in 2017; it was an investment for a future economic development opportunity. With Provalus choosing Manning, it proves the investment was definitely a good one. We’re excited that Provalus is establishing a site in our downtown, which will provide career opportunities for our citizens, neighboring communities and additional business opportunities,” City of Manning Mayor Julia A. Nelson explained.

“The fact that Provalus chose South Carolina for the company’s newest facility further proves that the Palmetto State has the business climate companies are looking for,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.

“We are consistently working at diversifying our local economy. Provalus’ decision to locate in downtown Manning builds on that strong foundation,” Clarendon County Council Chairman Dwight Stewart added.

“Provalus’ visionary decision to establish operations in Clarendon County provides an exciting opportunity for the IT landscape. Congratulations to Provalus and our friends in Clarendon County for amplifying our workforce and charting a bright future for small town tech,” Central S.C. Alliance Chairman Mike Brenan added.
