Richmond is on the cutting edge of economic development and expansion. With natural resources, a centralized regional location on several major roadways, public utilities and land, and a fierce, dedicated staff, the City of Richmond is committed to business attraction, retention, and expansion. Partnership between the City, the Economic Development Corporation, the Center City Development Corporation, and the Chamber of Commerce, has yielded significant and impactful results. Recent success stories include the
opening and almost immediate expansion of Omen Casting and Blue Buffalo who constructed a 400,000 square foot production facility on the west side of Richmond. Neither of these projects could have been accomplished without the city and the community rallying in support.
