Morrisville's available space, talent pool and infrastructure make it the ideal location for any business but certain industry clusters will find it to be a perfect fit. In partnership with Wake County Economic Development, the Morrisville Chamber has identified the following sectors as target clusters.
Advanced Medical Technologies
Companies in this sector may be engaged in anything from healthcare related software development to medical device manufacturing.
Life Sciences and Biotechnology
Thanks to the Research Triangle, North Carolina has the third-largest concentration of biotech companies in the country. Several corporations including FujiFilm Diosynth, GlaxoSmithKline and PPD have chosen Morrisville as a location for their business.
The Research Triangle has become a hub for businesses streamlining the delivery of power throughout the country. Morrisville is home or close neighbors to many leaders in this industry including Sensus, Siemens and ABB.
The Raleigh MSA has long been a leader in software and IT. Homegrown Red Hat, SAS and other innovative software companies demonstrate the success of locating a business in the area and Morrisville is in the heart of the region. Computer manufacturer Lenovo has its U.S. headquarters in Morrisville employing approximately 1,800 people.
The computer and video game industry is a growing industry in the Raleigh MSA, specifically serious games and advanced learning technologies.
Governor Perdue and the NC General Assembly have created a climate that not only supports its military but uses it as an economic development. Morrisville's proximity to North Carolina's major military installations make it a desirable location for businesses seeking to do contract business with the military.
Morrisville and the Raleigh metro area have the resources to become a leading destination for companies building electric cars.
This cluster takes advantage of the research going on at NC State.
The current work force and infrastructure that already exists in the Triangle make this emerging industry is a natural for Morrisville and the area.
