This past year, West Virginia’s economic growth rate was ranked highest of any state in the country, thanks in part to an uptick of manufacturing across industries and the sustained growth of our natural gas industry.

As we approach national Manufacturing Day, these economic trends are encouraging news, with more opportunities on the horizon offering a promising, bright future for the Mountain State.

Recent developments including China Energy’s plans to invest $83 billion here, the construction of Shell’s ethane cracker in Pennsylvania that will be supplied with West Virginia-produced ethane, Proctor & Gamble’s investments to grow its Martinsburg facility and expansions of Hino and Toyota, further demonstrate West Virginia’s bright manufacturing outlook. And the opportunity for growth doesn’t end there.
