Location means everything in the business world. Luckily, the Piedmont has access to a reliable infrastructure of roadways like Interstates 77 and 85 that link regions and communities. Interstate 77, for example, links York County to Charlotte, N.C., the second largest financial center in the United States. Numerous Fortune 500 companies reside in the Charlotte region, and because the Piedmont area lies midway between New York City and Miami, these companies have access to more than 50 percent of the nation’s population and industry base.
Under the leadership of the York County Economic Development Board, this area is adapting with the times and is making incredible strides in the global economic competition. Despite the changes, one thing always remains the same: even as opportunities and advantages arise, York County still maintains its charm and Southern hospitality.
