Enthusiasm and hard work have long been a part of the business landscape in Fayetteville and Cumberland County, NC.
We have a workforce with a median age of 29.9 — far below the national median — and a much higher than average percentage of workers who have college degrees (Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Computer and Information Sciences and Mathematics and Statistics are the most common).
Every year, that workforce grows by thousands of military retirees with high levels of technical skills and personal discipline, and we have a steady supply of well-educated military spouses.
Our 21.2 percent per-capita GDP growth over the past decade is solid proof of our area’s productivity and the success of our right-to-work status.
Our dedication to hard work and our supply of skilled workers is an ideal combination for industries such as business and financial operations, food processing, defense support services, logistics/warehouse services, and advanced manufacturing — and local K-12 and higher educational institutions support those employers with customized training.
