Existing Industry Spotlight
Metalworking is an incredibly diverse field, ranging from manufacturers of metal roofs and building components to machine shops that create precise pieces for companies in the medical, defense and advanced manufacturing industries.

Because Onslow County is already home to a number of companies, we see this sector continuing to grow and contribute significantly to our local economy.learn more
