Existing Industry Spotlight

Metalworking

MetalworkingMetalworking 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. Like many other industries, the presence of metalworking companies (and their skilled employees) tends to attract other similar businesses. 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.
