Advanced Manufacturing

There is a long tradition of manufacturing here in Caldwell County. In fact, the county is home to several companies which have been manufacturing products locally for over a century. Today, the tradition continues as close to a quarter of all Caldwell County jobs are in some way tied to the manufacturing sector. 

While Caldwell County remains strong in its heritage industries like textiles and furniture - the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton MSA remains #1 in the country for furniture production – others such as metal fabrication and food processing are using cutting edge manufacturing techniques, coupled with Caldwell County’s advantageous utilities and trained workforce, to successfully establish themselves in the region.
