Henderson and Vance County offers growing companies a labor force of more than 1.1 million people within 45-miles (the population in this same radius is over 2 million). With US-1 and I-85 intersecting in the county, that means Vance County is in easy commuting distance for good jobs.

 According to the U.S. Census, Vance County has an unusually high number of workers engaged in manufacturing, agriculture, and forestry, fishing and hunting. Other strong employment sectors include healthcare and retail. The highest paying industries are utilities, finance and insurance services, and professional, scientific and technical services. This is a labor force that works hard and offers diverse skill sets for companies.
