Where Industries Take Center Stage.
Cumberland County's creative and innovative spirit permeates every type of industry in the area. International businesses in the ceramic tile and distribution industries chose Cumberland County because of its strategic location and access to Interstate 40. The outdoor- and art-based businesses Cumberland was once known for have become part of a broad industry base that includes automotive suppliers, agribusiness, publishing and manufacturing. Multiple companies tied to logistics and construction industries take advantage of Cumberland County's superb location and natural resources.
