Virginia's i81-i77 Crossroads

Learn how We Build it Better in Virginia's i81-i77 Crossroads

Located at the crossroads of interstate 81 & 77, two major east coast interstates, the region is ripe for opportunity and investment. Equipped with some of the best greenfield sites in Virginia, as well as a low-cost business environment. Lower taxes, lower utility rates, and lower cost of living provide for lower than average wages.

Access to a premier United States engineering institute at Virginia Tech and state of the art workforce development programs. In turn 20% of the region’s labor is employed in manufacturing industries. Due to these assets many international companies operate and thrive in the region.
