West Virginia’s two technology parks paving the way to the future (Daily Mail WV)


Nearly everyone has heard of California’s Silicon Valley and North Carolina’s famed Research Triangle Park.

Top source. The complete details.

The West Virginia Regional Technology Park in South Charleston, one of two technology parks in the state, seeks to create technology-based jobs to diversify and grow the state’s economy. Here Steven Hedrick, president and CEO of Tech Park tenant MATRIC, talks with the Tech Park’s Mary Darnell in the lobby of Building 740.

The $15 million, 55,000-square-foot Advanced Technology Center owned by the state’s Community and Technical College System serves as a flexible training ground for educational and workforce training programs. Toyota Motor Manufacturing of West Virginia contributed $1 million to support training programs, including an advanced manufacturing technician program where students can take classes at the Center and also work at Toyota toward earning an associate degree.
