At the heart of South Carolina’s manufacturing corridor along Interstate 85, Clemson University is in the center of a booming economic expansion. Local industry neighbors include BMW, Michelin, 3M and Lockheed, to name a few. Our excellent location along with Clemson’s close working relationship with many of our local industries put us in a major position for supply chain activity and support. Therefore, our mission is to conduct theoretical and applied research as well as educational activities in all aspects of the supply chain that contributes to the knowledge base in this field and that supports economic development within the State of South Carolina. To carry out this mission, we have organized our activities under 3 independent programs: CISCOL, CELDi and RCEE.
