Manufacturing provides more jobs in West Virginia than any other industry, offers great wages and benefits, and delivers to West Virginia and the world quality products like automotive parts, chemicals, plastics, hardwood flooring, food products, and so much more. Manufacturers are innovators that invest in West Virginia. 

Manufacturers are community partners who believe in contributing to their state, cities, and towns. From supporting local schools and sports teams, to providing thousands of volunteer hours around the state, manufacturers give back. A survey of 20 WVMA member companies demonstrates the magnitude of manufacturers in West Virginia beyond jobs.

WMVA Cares

February 14, 2017 marks the launch of the WVMA Cares Program, a community support program created to further highlight the impact of manufacturing in West Virginia and encourage manufacturers to become more involved in making West Virginia a better place to live, work, raise a family, and invest.  

In addition to the numerous community and statewide charitable initiatives supported by our companies WVMA Cares also has a charitable focus highlighting three charities each year that play a key part in the development of a healthy West Virginia. WVMA companies are encouraged to volunteer or contribute to WVMA Cares Charities throughout the year. 

WVMA Cares charities for 2017 are the March of Dimes Walk for Babies, the Children’s Home Society, and the American Heart Association. You can learn more about each of these charities andways that you can help by clicking the links below.
