High Tech Corridor PDF Print E-mail

TMC Technologies is located in the heart of the I-79 High Technology Corridor, a geographic area that has retained its traditional business base, while successfully diversifying its economy into dynamic new sectors such as high technology, biotechnology, forensic science, biometrics, and aerospace manufacturing.

Exceptionally low unemployment rates, low crime rates, short commutes, and a natural lifestyle that includes the beauty of mountains, rivers, and wildlife, makes the High Tech Corridor a favorite destination of many of today’s talented techies. 

West Virginia’s Information Technology industry, in which TMC Technologies specializes, has grown 33% in the past 15 years.

The High Tech Corridor features significant federal installations, outstanding institutions of higher education, a world-class fiber optic system, low-cost energy, high-quality healthcare, and a workforce renowned for its dedication and commitment to excellence.

With many large organizations and companies taking advantage of the lower costs associated with such infrastructure and strategic location, a recent economic study found that high tech industries in northern West Virginia contribute $5.2 billion to the state's economy each year.

The High Tech Corridor region is consistently named among America’s “best places to live.” Morgantown, for instance, was recently rated the best small city in America by bizjournals.com.

Major technology operations within the High Tech Corridor include the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, NASA’s Independent Verification & Validation facility, U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Biometrics Fusion Center, National White Collar Crime Center, and many more. 

The I-79 High Technology Corridor is also home to West Virginia University, a Carnegie Foundation Research Institution and a training academy for Cisco Systems. Other educational opportunities are available through Fairmont State University, Salem International University, Alderson-Broaddus College, West Virginia Wesleyan College, and others.
