Business Attraction

Striving to Meet Your Expectations

Tazewell County is continually working to encourage diversification and attract hi-tech companies...

...Business attraction to Tazewell County remains a priority as we seek to grow and diversify our region.  Tazewell County strives to be on the forefront of any new business activity that may come through the e-Region channel (Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority-VCEDA), the Virginia Economic Development Partnership or from independent  marketing to locate potential companies who want to come to an area that is truly a Live-Learn-Work and Play environment.  There is a tremendous effort to grow our county which begins with our County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) and Economic Development department and expands to the Board of Supervisors(BOS) and many of our county and regional partners. 

The Bluestone Business and Technology Center is the County’s major draw for a hi-tech company wanting to come to Southwest Virginia.  The Center is ready for your business.  Be part of this exciting location and all it will offer you in the future.

Regional Educational Partners who play a major role in helping attract business to Tazewell County include Southwest Virginia Community College, Bluefield State College on the WV side, Virginia Tech and UVA Wise.  Tazewell County relies on cooperation from these entities in showing that we have the necessary educational component so necessary for hi-tech companies who want to locate in our beautiful county.
