Key Industries

The Town of Fuquay-Varina considers the recruitment of manufacturing firms to its community a key economic development objective. The recruitment of manufacturing companies involves the efforts and participation of local and regional economic development entities. Fuquay-Varina is home to the manufacturing leaders of John Deere Turf Care, Southbend, Bob Barker and TE Connectivity; these four companies make up Fuquay-Varina’s BIG 4 Initiative. This initiative truly demonstrates a public-private partnership between the Town and its core manufacturing firms that are partnering to capitalize on the latest trends in manufacturing.

  • Advanced Manufacturing
