WVMA Winter Conf 2019 1040x150 2

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Manufacturers Association (WVMA) is thanking voters for supporting the Roads to Prosperity Amendment and allowing the state to make a major infrastructure investment over the next several years.

“Our members represent a broad spectrum of manufacturing in West Virginia, and we couldn’t be happier with this election result,” said WVMA President Rebecca McPhail. “West Virginia has seen some major manufacturing and economic development news lately, particularly in the automotive sector, so having safe roads and bridges is all too important to us.”

The WVMA was part of a non-partisan coalition of business and labor groups that combined forces for a statewide road bond campaign.

“We have said it many times, but it is worth repeating: Our ability to compete in today’s manufacturing economy relies heavily on our ability to ship and receive products safely and efficiently,” McPhail said. “Now, we can tell companies that are looking at West Virginia for potential investment that our infrastructure finally is going to get the attention it deserves. West Virginia’s future looks even brighter than it did just a couple days ago. The massive infrastructure investment that is going to come from this road bond plan is going to transform our state.”

The WVMA is comprised of more than 175 companies representing a broad range of manufacturing sectors including chemical, food grade, hardwood, steel and automotive manufacturing. Currently, the manufacturing industry employees more than 47,000 West Virginians at competitive wage levels, accounting for nearly 10 percent of the states total output.
