Alamance County has a unique benefit for companies considering expanding or relocating operations. With two interstates running concurrently through the county, the area from which to pull workers extends well beyond county lines. Employees have a very easy commute in from two major metropolitan areas – the Research Triangle/Raleigh-Durham area to the east and the Piedmont Triad/Greensboro-Winston Salem area to the west.
Alamance County also has a substantial number of college graduates ready to go to work from both local institutions such as Elon University and Alamance Community College, but also nearby institutions such as Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Wake Forest University and University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
