Welcome to the Port of Columbia
The Port of Columbia’s mission is to maximize public resources and private investment to create jobs, provide infrastructure, and maintain and improve the economic vitality of Columbia County and its communities.
The Port of Columbia serves as the lead Economic Development Agency for Columbia County and offers assistance to all businesses in the county. We also coordinate with our neighboring counties on regional initiatives.
The Port of Columbia is excited to share Columbia Pulp’s news of completed financing for the construction of a straw pulp manufacturing facility in northern Columbia County. The Port and our community partners have been working for almost a decade to assist this company as they put together a revolutionary idea to create a value-added product out of wheat straw. Today we can celebrate the idea coming to fruition. This project is expected to create over 100 new jobs, increase Columbia County’s tax base, and spur economic activity for years to come.You can read Columbia Pulp’s news release here.
