FEATURED MANUFACTURING TESTIMONIAL:
“Schonstedt began looking for space in WV because one of our initial investors was a native and strong supporter of WV. We were attracted to the Burr Park, because of the proximity to our work force who lived in Leesburg and west, the economic attractiveness, and the outstanding support we got from the JCDA. We have been here over 11 years, and other than finding contractors during deer season, our experiences have all been positively outstanding. We have been able to attract a super work force at all levels from assembly worker to highly educated and skilled technical and management people. We have had very little turnover, and our costs have continued to be reasonable. It has been and continues to be a great place for our business.”
