The Piedmont Triad Partnership understands the critical role of international trade and investment to the continued growth of our economy and their contribution to the unique competitiveness of our region. We work to attract international investment and to promote international opportunities for existing companies through a variety of programs and partnerships.
Whether international companies seek to open U.S. headquarters, establish a new distribution point or expand a corporate branch within the United States, the Piedmont Triad provides a wealth of resources and strategic advantages with a wide range of support industries.
The Piedmont Triad region is proud to host an international community consisting of hundreds of companies currently representing 29 different countries. These firms operate in a variety of industry clusters and boast many very recognizable names.
The Region’s central East Coast location provides access through the Piedmont Triad International Airport, rail service, intermodal facilities and the convergence of six U.S. Interstate highways.
In addition, international firms benefit from a skilled workforce and excellent training resources through the community college training program, and the multi-site locations of Foreign Trade Zone #230 provide significant benefits.
