  • “The partnerships we have between public, private and non-profit sectors are all extremely positive. Leaders on both sides are excited to work together, and they do it very well. Concord is a great place to live and work, and Lilly strives to make communities where we live and work better places, and for a community like Concord, this isn’t hard to do.”

  • “After searching at length without success for additional industrial space I contacted the Cabarrus EDC. I explained to Samantha Grass what I needed and she informed me of a 98,450 sq/ft building that was unoccupied, not on the market, but could be bought. It was perfect for what we needed and we closed in January. Thanks to Samantha and the Cabarrus EDC team, we are able to grow and add jobs in our home city/county.”
