What is the industrial activity in North Carolina?

As a north carolinian myself, I would say that textiles were, at least, a huge part of our states industry, though carbide inserts are more popular now, such as those made by Kennametal, and neighboring companies, such as Tungaloy among others. Most of my town consists of old mill houses built just for the mill/textile workers, and a good bit of them are still there, in northeastern north carolina, the former home of the largest weaveroom in the country, Patterson mill. It has since been regretably torn down.
