Once known as a thriving furniture and textiles manufacturing region, Mitchell County has emerged from that era keenly focused on the future. Today we are home to global corporations such as Quartz Corporation
. Alongside these international companies is a community of artists, craftspeople, alternative agricultural enterprises, service and health care providers and other small businesses that complete and balance our economy. It’s been said that Mitchell County is a “creative” community and we tend to agree. Our talented workforce forges their knowledge and skill with creativity to help their businesses find solutions and develop new products for the future.
