Reinventing Johnston County

Johnston County was the state's fastest growing county in 2004 and the fiftieth fastest in the nation. The year was also an outstanding one for business with more than $170 million in new business locations or expansions and creation of over 1,200 new jobs. Formerly an agricultural and low-end manufacturing community, the county focus is now on pharmaceuticals, distribution, and tourism. The county benefits from convenience and accessibility to three major highways, U.S. 70, I-40, and I-95; close proximity to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport; and Wake County and its thriving economy.
