With abundant and affordable resources and a motivated workforce, Altavista, Virginia is well-suited for most employers., along with very affordable electricity, and a highly trained workforce that understands the industry’s specific needs.
Those resources have made our community very attractive to food and beverage companies, which is why Abbott Laboratories chose to locate a major nutritional production facility here. We’re also home to FDA-approved plastic packaging producers Graham Packaging and Rage Plastics, giving food and beverage makers a local source for high-quality containers.
Just as important, our community’s workers are part of a long heritage of people who take pride in skilled, high-quality efforts. There’s a strong right-to-work spirit here, as our residents have been raised to believe that a paycheck is something to be earned, not an entitlement.
