Stanly County exemplifies a place in our region where life is in balance. Located just minutes east of Charlotte and all the amenities and business services that it provides, Stanly County offers a variety of affordable and diverse suburban, small town, rural and lake living environments along with diverse local attractions ranging from vineyards to parks to over 10,000 acres of lakes. It is conveniently and strategically located between the three major business centers in North Carolina and connects to them via newly upgraded highways, an extensive rail network, and airport with its own air traffic control tower. The percentage of the dedicated workforce in Stanly County engaged in manufacturing exceeds the regional average even as the mix of manufacturing operations is changing to include more firms in sectors such as energy and aerospace. A business-friendly environment, numerous well-served sites, and newly developed virtual buildings offer the type of footholds new and expanding companies need to succeed.
