TD Bank creating 1,600 jobs in South Carolina

TD Bank is expanding its South Carolina corporate offices and creating 1,600 jobs in the state over the next five years.

The company said Wednesday it will put a regional hub in Greenville, adding 1,400 jobs to its expanded campus off Interstate 85. A $17 million renovation of three buildings is to start early next year. The campus currently employs 160 people.

TD Bank also plans to add 200 jobs in Lexington.

TD's parent company, Canada's Toronto-Dominion Bank, acquired Greenville-based South Financial Group last year, adding 176 locations in the southeastern United States. TD's U.S. headquarters are in New Jersey.

TD did not have a U.S. presence six years ago, but now has 1,300 branches from Maine to Florida.
