Gaston County is the second-largest county in the Charlotte region with a population of over 200,000. With 16 fully equipped business parks – among the most in the region – and numerous buildings ranging from high-end to inexpensive, Gaston has a site to suit any prospect. Due to a number of recent textile plant closings, Gaston offers Tier II incentives (among the best in the region) and a workforce eager for new opportunities. Its location just west of Charlotte means it is closer to Charlotte Douglas International Airport than any other county, even closer to the airport than parts of Mecklenburg County.
