Iredell County has it all.  The cities of Statesville and Mooresville have joined forces to claim the Top Micropolitan area, as ranked by Site Selection Magazine, for seven of the past eight years.  Twenty new and expanded corporate facility projects in 2009 helped secure the most recent top honor.

Iredell County is one of the few counties in the Carolinas with two connecting interstates.  I-77 runs north and south while I-40 runs east and west.  Additionally, I-85 is only 15 minutes away.  Recreation, fun and quality of life abound on Lake Norman, with a 532-mile shoreline.  The county is a very pro-business community with a strong motorsports industry.
