After taking a hit from the coronavirus, economic activity in the Shenandoah Valley recovered in the second half of 2020, powered by the transportation, manufacturing and food-processing sectors.

“The valley really showed its resilience,” says Jay Langston, executive director of the Shenandoah Valley Partnership, a regional economic development group serving Augusta, Bath, Highland, Page, Rockbridge, Rockingham and Shenandoah counties.

In the spring, as the pandemic settled in, SVP was focused on helping local businesses survive. “We were able to pivot some of our manufacturing operations, secure loans for our businesses and respond to the needs of our customers, our citizens and our communities,” Langston says.
