Dover is part of one of the most desirable regions in New England––the New Hampshire Seacoast––yet Dover is still the Affordable Seacoast. Whether you are starting, relocating, or expanding a business in Dover, you’ll find the price is right for your enterprise––and for the families you employ.
Dover is within easy reach of four major airports, the Port of Portsmouth, and the Pease International Trade Zone. From Dover, you can do business with the enterprise next door, nationwide, or around the world.
Dover’s workforce is highly educated, skilled, and committed. (In fact, New Hampshire has the eighth highest technical content in its workforce in the nation.) Our mill heritage has imbued us with a strong work ethic, and the innovation and drive to continually reinvent ourselves and move forward. When the mills declined, Dover could have become another sad story of faded glory. But that was not the case. The people of Dover sought new enterprises, new ways to make the mills flourish, and an identity far beyond being just a “mill town.” The result has been a city reborn. Our downtown is more vibrant than ever. Our waterfront is alive with commerce, with recreation, with families enjoying parkland. Dover is strong, growing, with a future of unlimited potential.
