Unlike clothing, the building materials that go into American homes don’t have labels stating where they were produced. But if they did, many of those labels would say “proudly made in Wilkes County.”
The county is home to everything that helps build a home, including windows, cabinetry and millwork. The building, siding and lumber industries are a foundation of the local economy. For those companies, the advantages of being located Wilkes County include the dedicated, job-ready workforce and the area’s unsurpassed quality of life.
