Investor Testimonial

“Today, more than ever, we need to have an economic development effort that is working full-time, non-stop, in creative and strategic ways to recruit businesses to our county that will provide the jobs and resources to allow our community to grow in a balanced and healthy way. That is why our company is an investor in Cabarrus EDC.

Businesses that are expanding and relocating have an almost endless list of suitors who will woo them and promise the world to them to locate in their communities. It is a very competitive world, but the Cabarrus EDC team have the technical know-how and the talent to keep Cabarrus County ahead of the competition in recruitment of new business, and the skills and local context to make sure that our successful existing business have the resources and local government encouragement to grow and expand their operations without ever leaving home.

I consider the money that we invest in Cabarrus EDC to be one of the smartest investments we make as a business. All of us know that we have to continuously invest in our own businesses, making our people more efficient, providing them effective tools, and getting our product in front of our customers. But along with those investments, investing in Cabarrus EDC is an investment that completes the picture by supporting the organization that is charged with making sure that our phenomenal residential growth is balanced with smart and sustainable business growth, as well.”
