Northeast Tennessee
Explore the mountains of possibilities

It's 13 counties long and 340,000 workers strong, each one of them trained to meet the needs of modern industry.

Welcome to the Northeast Tennessee Valley. Beloved by tourists for scenic mountains and breathtaking valley views, it is also one of the southeastern United States' most strategic business locations.

We believe success starts with an intelligent, highly productive labor force, said Alicia Summers, director of the Northeast Tennessee Valley Regional Industrial Development Association ( www.netvaly.org ).

We have strong right-to-work laws here, and over 15,000 people actively seeking long term employment, she said, commenting on local absentee and turnover rates that are some of the lowest in the nation. That's one more reason our work force continues to set benchmarks for quality and productivity.
