In 2007, Money Magazine named Holly Springs, North Carolina as one of the best places to live in the country, ranking it 22nd among 100 Great American Towns, and among three cities in North Carolina on the list. For years, town leaders have been positioning Holly Springs for takeoff, propelled by the economic engine of Research Triangle Park. Nearly nine years ago, the Town began marketing a 400-acre business park for technology manufacturing companies.
Holly Springs Economic Development Department initiated a quiet, but ambitious, program to bring major biotechnology firms to Holly Springs. In summer 2006, those efforts paid off when Gov. Mike Easley announced that Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics would build a cell-based influenza vaccines manufacturing facility in the United States. The flu vaccine manufacturing facility has put Holly Springs on the front lines of a nationwide response to the threat of a flu pandemic. This region is filled with new industries that have moved in because of the proximity of Raleigh. With a wide range of products, including apparel and fabrics, electrical components, injection-molded plastic parts, office furniture, foods and more, employment prospects are good for a person in any trade.
