Waynesboro, Virginia


Waynesboro is a vibrant and historic City in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.

Our manufacturing heritage dates to the 1800's when companies  flocked to the area to take advantage of the water and transportation access.  Stoves, doors, furniture, bricks, barrels, dairy products, paper, and matches all carried the "Made in Waynesboro" label.

Later, DuPont, Crompton, Mohawk, and GE established a major presence in the city for the same reasons.

The City marketing message at the time was "the four W's"

  • Water for the vast natural resources in the area

  • Workers for the dedicated and productive workforce

  • Weather for the temperate climate

  • Wheels for the rail access- the north-south line (now Norfolk and Southern) crosses the east-west line (now CSX) in the city.

Today's message is much the same.  The city and surrounding area has vast natural resources, productive workforce, temperate weather, and the two railways are now joined by two interstate highways and five airports.
