Our Community


Located at the midpoint of the eastern seaboard, halfway between Maine and Miami, Columbus County is within a two-day truck drive of more than 200 million U.S. and Canadian consumers and over 70% of the U.S. industrial base. We’re proud to be part of North Carolina’s Southeast Region and we’re just a short drive from both the historic port city of Wilmington and the numerous golf courses and beach resorts of Myrtle Beach, SC.  

As indicated by the table below, Columbus County is within easy reach of several major east coast ports, some of the nation’s largest military installations and many fast growing metropolitan markets.
