The City of Mount Holly is principally supported by industry with a concentration in textiles. Located within the City are six plants of American & Efird, the world’s second largest thread maker; a large textile dyestuff plant of Clariant; a denim mill of Burlington Industries; and a medium-truck assembly plant of the Freightliner Corporation. Our downtown is fast becoming an attractive place to locate a small business, alongside businesses at the forefront of technology such as Gaston Technical Support. Several service providers are also located downtown, such as printing businesses, florists, and restaurants. Current refurbishing of the old train depot will offer new opportunities for retail and office space.
