The Chamber was originally founded in 1998 as the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of North Carolina.
We were the 17th chamber within the umbrella organization of SACC-USA.
In 2002, the Chamber recognized the increased presence of Swedish business activities in the Charlotte/Greenville, Spartanburg, and Charleston region. As a result, the members consented to changing the name to Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of the Carolinas, Inc. at the annual meeting held in November 2002.
SACC of the Carolinas is a membership organization whose aim is to promote and advance business relations between the U.S. and Sweden. An equal representation of both Swedish and U.S. members makes our organization unique and adds to the strength of our network. We provide members with access to an outstanding network of corporate, business and private members, who range from students enrolled at local universities to representatives from major international companies.
