Located in the southernmost tip of Cabarrus County and just a few miles east of Charlotte in Mecklenburg County, Midland has a population of more than 3,500 people.
Midland is home to two major employers: Corning, Inc., which is the largest fiber optic facility in the world, and Intertape Polymer Group (IPG). Aberdeen Carolina & Western Railway Company has a significant presence as the only railroad in the Charlotte region that connects CSX Transportation with the Norfolk & Southern railroad lines.
Midland is poised to become the next business "boomtown" in Cabarrus County because of its strong industrial-based economy. There is excellent infrastructure with easy access via US 24-27 to Interstate 485.
