Building on our heritage. Staying ahead of the curve.
Charlotte’s economy started with manufacturing, and many of those companies are still around today, innovating solutions for our increasingly digital world. As manufacturing advances towards Industry 4.0, global companies are choosing to make Charlotte their home not only for production operations, but for their headquarters as well. Our talent pool, deep in technical, engineering, management, and administration workers, offers unprecedented opportunities for manufacturers looking to create the next big thing. Here, you’ll find a variety of warehouse and mixed-use spaces near the city’s urban core, and easy access to major highways, connectivity to the East Coast’s most efficient port and proximity to the 5th busiest airport in the world.
Innovative companies continue to gravitate to Charlotte, with its strong concentrations in machining, food and beverage, plastics, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
