About Hampton Roads, Virginia

The region takes its name from the central water body, the Hampton Roads, that ties our communities together. From our ports and naval ships, to our rivers, beaches and thousands of miles of coastline, water is the lifeblood of our community. Just as the roadstead or “roads”  has long served as a safe and protected anchorage for ships, Hampton Roads, as a region, provides a secure location for your business to grow.

Centrally located on the East Coast of the U.S., Hampton Roads has proven to be a premier location for the following industries as demonstrated by the companies that have already established a home here:

While these industries are most suitable for rapid growth in Hampton Roads, our diverse workforce, low cost of business and unmatched quality of life make Hampton Roads a suitable choice for companies of any industry.
