Why Gaston County

The Gaston County advantage


Why is Gaston County critical to this project? On the surface, the answer is simple: This is where the lithium is.

Gaston County is home to the Carolina Tin Spodumene Belt, one of the largest in the world and the only source of spodumene – a mineral that lithium comes from – in America.

But it’s more than just location.

The county has a business climate that promotes and supports growth and economic development. It has excellent proximity to major automobile markets in the United States and abroad. Its labor force is loyal and skilled.

And it is a wonderful place to work, locate a company, raise a family, and enjoy a superior quality of life.

In other words, Gaston County has everything it takes – all the right stuff – to become a booming hub for a booming industry whose products are made in America.
