Halifax County

Halifax County, Virginia is ideally positioned to help foreign companies expand their operations to the United States. Globally we are positioned on east coast, mid-Atlantic region and therefore able to do business with Europe and the U.K. during the same business day. Our extensive, well-kept and high-speed highway system puts Halifax just 3 hours’ drive from Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Defense industry’s headquarters; less than 10 hours’ drive of 60 % of the U.S. population and its largest markets and suppliers; just 2 ½ hours’ drive west of and on the same highway as the Port of Virginia — the east coast’s deepest natural seaport and full intermodal facility; and a 1 ½ hours’ drive of three international airports including daily direct flights to London and Paris.

Halifax, VA has build-ready sites, graded and appointed with robust and affordable power, water, sewer, natural gas and data. The southern wood-lands and agricultural lands allow us to support strong wood products and value-added ag-processing.
