Badin Business Park, located on the site of a former aluminum smelter operated by Alcoa Inc., sits adjacent to Badin Lake in Stanly County, NC. It is considered one of the best heavy industrial sites in North Carolina.

Alcoa began developing the Badin Business Park in 2011. After nearly a century of aluminum production, the company invested more than $15 million to remove buildings and develop the site for future industry. Enhancements included building shell upgrades, roof repairs, and new lighting to help attract Electronic Recyclers International to Badin Business Park in 2012.

In 2021, Custom Alloy Corp. announced that it would locate at Badin Business Park. A leading manufacturer of pipe fittings and forgings, Custom Alloy signed a long-term lease to produce critical components for U.S. Navy submarines and aircraft carriers at Badin Business Park.
