The narrative explaining why the Roanoke Region is ideal for business isn’t limited to companies choosing to relocate to our area. Every year, companies that call our region home reinvest millions back into the community they love to expand their footprints. It’s invigorating when a business chooses to relocate its headquarters to the Roanoke Region; companies choosing to stay and expand are equally impressive.
