Gateway Partnership

Gateway to a stronger region.

The region of Eastern North Carolina that includes and surrounds Nash and Edgecombe counties is one with enormous potential. Comprised of 18 cities, towns and municipalities, the area is ripe with growth and expansion opportunities for companies of all types and offers a long list of benefits:

  • An abundance of prime property
  • Low operating expenses
  • A plentiful workforce with a good work ethic
  • Good quality of life for employees and their families
  • Excellent educational and training facilities
  • Proximity to key markets all along the East Coast

To help companies from across the state and across the country gain a better appreciation of what the area has to offer, a combined public and private economic development agency was formed.

Carolinas Gateway Partnership

The Carolinas Gateway Partnership is a public-private industrial recruitment agency dedicated to the economic development of Nash and Edgecombe. It works to attract
companies to this area and to support them in their relocation and continued growth through an aggressive economic development program.

Thanks to the work of the Carolinas Gateway Partnership, numerous state and local economic incentives are available to qualifying companies that expand or relocate here.

Depending on the  capital investment and degree of job creation, economic incentives may be available for land, worker training, worker relocation, equipment and more.
