Our communities offer an unmatched combination of available infrastructure, reduced business costs and market access suitable to meet your project's economic development needs.

We are strategically located in central North Carolina and the rapidly growing Southeast region, with direct access to interstate highways, rail, and both international and regional airports including our own Rowan County Airport (RUQ). Rowan County has a well-trained and available workforce to meet your changing business needs, as well as a thriving business environment and a welcoming quality of life. Our Fibrant fiber to the home network is the fastest in North Carolina, allowing the speed and convenience that today's businesses need.


Rowan County is situated in the vastly growing Piedmont region of North Carolina. We are lucky to be positioned along Interstate 85. With a strategic location between the exploding Charlotte metro and the dynamic Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point markets, Rowan County can meet all of your transportation needs.

Our state is within a 700-mile radius of more than 150 million U.S. and Canadian consumers. We can offer you quick access to two international airports. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is approximately 45 miles away and the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro is approximately 55 miles away.

Rowan County offers a premier location for warehouses, manufacturing and distribution facilities. This is because the largest consolidated rail system in the country is centered in our region. We are also home to over 45 freight companies.
