Elizabeth City – Pasquotank County (EC-PC) is positioned just south of the Virginia border in Northeastern North Carolina. The Hampton Roads communities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach are all accessible by only a 30-50 minute drive along an already 4-laned future interstate highway. This proves very cost effective for companies looking to import and export goods out of the Port of Virginia, the largest deep-water port on the East Coast of the United States. As such, EC-PC is part of the Port of Virginia’s Foreign Trade Zone 20 (FTZ 20) which includes many cost-savings benefits and protections for operating your business within this area.
The cost-savings of locating your business in North Carolina vs. Virginia can be a game changer that includes savings on property taxes, corporate taxes, cost of living, land and buildings, and more robust incentives for locating and expanding your business.
