Southern Business & Development Calls Newport News Region Tops in Advanced Manufacturing, Great Innovation Markets of the South

Southern Business & Development, a leading site selection magazine, has ranked Hampton Roads (the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-NEWPORT NEWS MSA) the #8 market in the South for Advanced Manufacturing and the leading Southern Market for Innovation. The twin designation recognizes the technology assets that have made Newport News America’s Hi-Tech Hometown. Newport News companies such as Canon Virginia, Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding and Continental, AG have leaded the way in developing and implementing advanced manufacturing techniques. Spurred by research from Jefferson Lab, NASA’s Langley Research Center and the region’s growing modeling and simulation sector, Newport News companies such as Dilon Technologies and Soluble Systems are leading examples of high-tech innovation powering successful small companies in Newport News.
