Healthcare, Tourism/Hospitality, and Retail are our 3 largest private industry sectors. Manufacturing and Construction are consistently solid industries here as well. Moore County appreciates our existing industries and is committed to maintaining a business climate that is conducive to their growth and success.
Moore County also welcomes new business and industry opportunities. As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) move of Fort McPherson, Georgia to the Fort Bragg Army installation in neighboring Hoke and Cumberland Counties, the new industry sector of defense and homeland security is emerging regionally. Moore County is an attractive, convenient location for military contractors and suppliers, not only because of our adjacent proximity to Fort Bragg, but also because of the large number of retired military that live in Moore County and enhance our skilled workforce.
