North Carolina Economic Development Guide

It's easy in North Carolina

It's easy to like North Carolina living. There are more than 300 miles of beaches. Head to the mountains, which include Mount Mitchell, the highest peak in the East. In between there is big-city culture - museums, professional and college sports, and the best barbecue in the country.

There's much to like about working here, too. German filter-maker Mann+Hummel Group opened a headquarters and research-and-development office in Raleigh to take advantage of recruitment and technology development. St. Augustine, Fla.-based NTE Energy LLC and Atlanta-and San Francisco-based T5 Data Centers LLC, which count AT&T and Disney as tenants, are finding the resources they need in Kings Mountain, including support from officials and off-the-beaten-path peacefulness. In the western counties, outdoor-gear manufacturers have world-class proving grounds that also keep their employees - who like to use the gear as much as make it - happy.

That's how John Lassiter wants it. He's chairman of Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina Inc., which was created to provide nimble and cost-effective marketing and customer service to a revamped N.C. Department of Commerce. The public-private partnership brings business assets together to help companies relocate of expand. We chose to live, raise our families and work here because of what our state has to offer.
