Martinsville-Henry County, Virginia

In the middle of everything

Martinsville-Henry County could quite possibly be the most conveniently located town on the East Coast.

It’s one of those communities where people still wave hello to everyone they meet on the street. It’s small enough to keep costs down, but big enough to get the job done – whatever the job.

Martinsville-Henry County, Virginia has been a quiet locale for a long time now. Sure, they host a couple of NASCAR Nextel Cup races every year and are within a short drive of Roanoke and Greensboro. But this community remains something of a hidden gem at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

But that secret would change quickly if corporate America recognized what this place really offers. Martinsville-Henry County is conveniently located, offers great transportation advantages, abundant skilled labor, a high quality of life and low cost for doing business. But, up until now, that was all kept pretty quiet.
