The Chatham County Board of Commissioners is committed to providing a stronger, more diverse economic base that will provide more jobs for residents both now and into the future. We have a long, proud tradition in manufacturing and agri-business, but we are excited to a wide array of businesses, including small entrepreneurial businesses, springing up in various parts of the county. We also want existing businesses to know that we are here as a resource to support their needs so that they will continue to be successful.
We have many assets to offer businesses, including:
- A convenient location directly between the Research Triangle and the Piedmont Triad;
- Major highways connecting us to the major cities in the area and a nearby international airport connecting us to the rest the nation and the world;
- A population with an overall high education level, along with two community college locations to support business-specific training needs;
- A priceless quality of life that includes rural community values, scenic beauty and good schools; and
- Hard-working and friendly people who are increasingly diverse.
