Defense

West Virginia is ready and eager to welcome defense companies and federal agencies seeking a loyal workforce, opportune location and rewarding lifestyle for employees.

West Virginia’s proximity to major metropolitan areas makes it an excellent location for the production of military and defense products and technologies. The state’s network of highways, railways and rivers connect us to surrounding states. The Mountain State is within a day’s drive of 34% of the top domestic purchasing sectors, defense contractors and federal agencies. Specifically, the state’s proximity to Washington, D.C,. makes it a prime location for defense centers close to our nation’s capital.

The West Virginia National Defense Industry Association (WVNDIA) provides additional support for the defense industry to grow and thrive in West Virginia.
