To help our Chamber Shareholders & Investors acheive growth and competitiveness success, we have forged a partnership with one of our state's most experienced business assistance programs: the university-based NC Small Business & Technology Development Center (SBTDC).  The SBTDC has a proven track record helping businesses develop high-return strategies including increasing sales, developing new markets, building talent, enhancing leadership capabilities and working with regional partners to focus on your business needs.

A new SBTDC resource center has been established at the Chamber and staffed by SBTDC Business Advisors for all Shareholders & Investors upon request.  In addition, SBTDC professionals will come to your business for advisory services if preferred.  


From our humble beginnings in Catawba County back in 1944, Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company has been committed to cultivating its business through innovation and collaboration with its strategic partners.  The Catawba County Chamber of Commerce shares this same commitment.  The Chamber's effort in developing a skilled and diverse workforce has been essential to our community and our employment of more than 800 local workers.  The Chamber has led the way for the community in creating campaigns and initiatives focused on promoting commerce, leadership, education and most importantly advocating the business and community as one voice.  HSM is proud to partner with the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce."

Mark S. Jones, President & CEO

Becoming a Catawba County Chamber of Commerce member was the best decision I could have made, especially as I was starting out with a new business concept and had no idea what to expect from starting my own company.  I am very thankful to the Small Business Center for suggesting I give it a try.  From the first meeting, I was made to feel welcome and part of a business community.  I am continually offered advice, encouragement and support from Chamber staff, shareholders and investors when needed and friendships have been made that will last for many years.  

This is a vibrant and exciting Chamber that continually looks to push boundaries, do things no Chamber has done before and leads by passionate leadership and committed staff.  Everyone and every business is treated equal and the Chamber staff are always looking for new innovative ways to encourage and develop economic growth in this area.  Being part of this Chamber helped my business gro from just myself to ten people and counting and I couldn't have done it without them.  Thank you to everyone involved with the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce.  You bring out the best in business!

We have truly benefited from our involvement with the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce and have been members since the year we opened our store in 2010.  The opportunities with leads groups, the Women's Leadership event and Hickory Young Professionals have increased recognition of our gift store in Newton and have helped to grow our business.
