Perfecting the Production Process 

Manufacturing is rooted in North Carolina’s rich history, particularly in Winston-Salem. Now, the manufacturing sector has grown to encompass advanced methods of production and high-tech systems. 16,000+ people are employed in this sector in Forsyth County, with more growth anticipated over the next five years thanks to new redevelopment projects. Two miles north of downtown Winston-Salem is Whitaker Park, a 220-acre manufacturing complex with the potential to generate thousands of jobs. This redevelopment project will repurpose a manufacturing campus into a mixed-use employment center including laboratory space, multi-family residential, information technology, manufacturing and training, and education facilities.

Your business will thrive in Winston-Salem, where it has room to grow and reach its full potential. Available real estate properties can be found here.
