Medical data company Sync.MD announces plans to come to Anderson SC
A medical data company plans to come to Anderson and hire 10 people.
Sync.MD plans to locate in Anderson at a county business incubator building at Whitehall and State 28, said Tommy Dunn, the county council chairman.
Dunn said the company is a technology firm from the West Coast, it’s based in Washington state, and it opens up possibilities for other tech companies to have employees in Anderson County.
Dunn said he expects to have several more companies, one existing and several new companies, making announcements soon.
“Things are opening back up,” he said.
Sync.MD should help to bring average wages in the county, which has been a years-long priority, Dunn said.
Statements announcing the company’s location did not include an estimated average salary, which used to be included in such announcements from state commerce officials.
The county’s average income per person was $27,552 in 2019, the latest U.S. Census Bureau figures. That’s about $2,000 less than the state average.
Dunn said high-tech companies and advanced manufacturing like toilet paper company First Quality and medical supplies company Arthrex have helped to raise the county’s income level and attract other companies that can continue that rise.
Sync.MD expects to be running the Anderson location by fall, according to a statement from S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster’s office.
The company was founded in 2015 and specializes in mobile data storage of health and medical records, according to the statement.
In a statement, U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan said he met company officials years ago and pitched them on South Carolina as a business-friendly state.
