Officials with the companies say they primarily build roads and parking lots. Below is an excerpt from the OL Thompson home page.

“For over 70 years, O.L. Thompson Construction Co., Inc. has served as one of the tri-county area’s premier site work construction firms. Our main emphasis is site development, material handling, and transportation; our current scope of work includes demolition, clearing, grubbing, excavation, storm drainage, sanitary sewer, potable water, concrete, curbing, asphalt paving, and material recycling & processing. We have the capabilities to perform a turnkey operation in the area of site development. A major attribute of our company is the ability to move large volumes of earth in short periods of time. This is accomplished by operating one of the largest mining operations in the Charleston area, having a large fleet of off-road trucks and support equipment, and having affiliated companies to offer in-house support.”

Working Wednesdays is a weekly segment that focuses on employment opportunities. You will learn about companies around the Lowcountry, and the current and future positions they have available. The interview will live stream at 1 p.m. on Live 5 Facebook, and Apple, Amazon Fire and Roku tv.

Ann McGill will talk with representatives from the companies to get in-depth information about the types of services and products they provide, as well as training, benefits and other information to help you decide if it’s a company you might want to work for.

Once the livestream is finished, it will be shared right here at and on Live 5 Facebook.
