Prince George has immediate access to the major industrial centers by way of its excellent location along the State's major interstate highways. The Hampton Roads Ports are 75 miles to theeast. The county is strategically located within a 500 mile radius of 50 percent of the nation's population and 55 percent of its manufacturing activity, thus, making it an ideal location for business or industry. The county is part of the Richmond-Petersburg Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). For more information contact the Department of Economic Development.

Army Quartermaster School and Fort Lee are located within Prince George County. This installation has impact upon, not only the County, but all of the Appomattox Basin.

Labor Resources

Virginia is one of the least unionized of the more industrial states. Three major reasons for this are the State’s Right to Work Law, the importance of manufacturing industries such as textiles, apparel, electrical machinery, and lumber which are not highly organized in Virginia, and the importance of federal civilian and military employment. Only four states had a smaller percentage of their nonagricultural work force unionized than Virginia.
