MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - The Myrtle Beach area continues its economic expansion with the announcement that Worksman Cycles will open a location along the Grand Strand.

The bicycle manufacturing facility is set to be housed in Conway and will employee 50 individuals. The bikes will be distributed to local businesses for sale.

"Our continuing goal is to broaden our economic base beyond tourism, and the inclusion of Worksman Cycles is another step in the right direction. We applaud the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation for their efforts in making this expansion a reality," said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. "This new facility will not only support economic growth, but having its products available for purchase will have a positive impact on both our visitors and residents who seek activities that promote health and wellness."
