Welcome to Horry County, DC BLOX
On Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023, Horry County Council and Staff joined with Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation, City of Myrtle Beach, and other partners to commemorate the grand opening of the DC BLOX facility within the Myrtle Beach International Technology & Aerospace Park (ITAP).
As Governor McMaster, County Council Chairman Johnny Gardner, and Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune shared in their remarks, the introduction of DC BLOX represents another step toward increasing the Horry County community’s global presence and future opportunities.
DC BLOX is a data storage company that provides the digital infrastructure for international communications. The ITAP facility is equipped to host multiple subsea cables—the first of their kind in South Carolina—as well as traditional workspaces for the necessary network and cable operators, communications providers, local enterprises and partners.
Among those who use the local DC BLOX digital infrastructure are Google and Meta.
“The tech hub DC BLOX is creating is preparing our County for the future. Congratulations on your new facility in Horry County,” said Gardner.
