Adjacent to Charlotte and Interstate 485, Union County has become so attractive, it is the seventh fastest-growing county in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and has surpassed all others in both Carolinas.

The productivity and competitive labor force, exceeding 90,000, utilizes the innovative curriculum offered by South Piedmont Community College. A degree program in metallurgy, one of only two in the nation, demonstrates the college’s eagerness to adapt to the needs of industry.  In addition, the emergence of a dynamic medical services cluster has recently prompted several expansions in the county and proves to be a continued source of new investment.
