Commerce Meets Community

Rarely do you find a community that’s as welcoming to families as it is to business. The Statesville Region embodies that philosophy, offering outstanding opportunities for industrial and commercial enterprise, as well as a place people gladly call home. This combination of assets helped rank our region as the nation’s number two micropolitan area in 2011.

Our superb location at the intersection of I-77 and I-40 affords easy transportation and travel access, plus puts us just 38 miles from Charlotte, the largest MSA of the Carolinas. We’re 15 minutes from Lake Norman, North Carolina’s largest lake, and 45 minutes from the Appalachian Mountains, so our recreational opportunities span snow skiing and hiking to water skiing and boating. We take pride in embracing the future while preserving the past as evident in our many homes and buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Most importantly, our region is marked by true Southern hospitality, a low cost of living and doing business, and the can-do spirit that’s synonymous with the Carolinas
