New Manufacturing Study Highlights Advantages in Charlotte Region
The Charlotte Regional Business Alliance recently completed a new manufacturing study highlighting why the Charlotte Region is a popular place for relocating and expanding manufacturing companies.
Over the past five years, the Charlotte Region’s manufacturing industry has grown at twice the national average. As companies are expected to reevaluate their supply chains in response to recent disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charlotte Region is poised for continued growth. At the close of 2020, the CLT Alliance issued the Manufacturing in the Charlotte Region Report and Labor Market Survey, highlighting some of the biggest trends in Manufacturing in our region. The study was truly a regional effort, with partnership from the fifteen counties that make up the Charlotte Region.
We encourage you to review the resources compiled to help your business connect in the region:
- An introduction to why manufacturing is important to the region
- A detailed look at 4 industry clusters in the region
- Appendix including innovation and educational assets, training and services providers, and talent information
