Our region was first known for its textile industry and later as a center for banking, but our identity could be changing. City leaders are looking at a number of new industries to promote such as energy or technology, but one industry is already healthy and growing- the defense industry. North Carolina has a large and growing number of defense contractors with more than a thousand companies receiving defense funding in the Charlotte region alone. We’ll explore our current defense industry, and the move to grow it.
