About Comtech

COMtech Pembroke, NC

If you’re looking for a low-cost, high-value rural location along the mid-Atlantic, then COMtech Business Park could be your best strategic move because we believe your performance and profit potential are empowered by seizing the opportunities our site offers both today and in the future.

Unique Assets?

Other business parks have workforce training, but few have both a nationally-ranked technical college and a locally-engaged state university that annually export hundreds of talented graduates. Our neighbour Fort Bragg (30 minutes) is one of the largest and busiest military complexes in the world.

Other business parks have interstates, but very few have intersecting interstates that get you to NY, Miami or Nashville in less than a day. Need RTP, Charlotte financing, or an international seaport. They’re all just 90 minutes away.

Other business parks have shovel-ready sites, except ours includes urban-like infrastructure such as multi-path dark fiber optic loops, quick-tap natural gas capacity, inland hurricane protection, drought-proof freshwater aquifers, and dual-substations that feed cheap southeast power.

Everyone has incentives, and there are many other Tier-1, HUBZone counties like us, but we are also home to the largest Native American tribe east of the Mississippi. At 55,000 strong, the Lumbees are arguably one of the most successful, enterprising tribes in the country with many certified 8(a) businesses headquartered locally. Even more, veteran-owned spin-off businesses are accessible and connected with nearby Fort Bragg.

To further protect our clients’ assets, partners in COMtech share the cost of dedicated security and maintaining the beauty and functional appeal of the site through a very reasonable dues system based on acreage and square footage.
