The City of Hickory’s goal is to deliver high quality services to citizens and visitors through excellent coworkers who are customer focused, innovative, team players, and perform at their best every day.
Hickory and the metro area have strong transportation, higher education, cultural and workforce development networks that have produced a strong manufacturing base, as well as extensive medical, retail, service, and residential development industries.
Hickory is for doers and makers seeking a well-rounded community, located an hour from Charlotte and Asheville at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along I-40, where a collective spirit of craftsmanship strengthens any endeavor with detail, artistry, and quality. Hickory is Life. Well Crafted!
