Posted On: July 22, 2020

Northern Shenandoah Valley Virginia rail sites are within 500 miles of two-thirds of the U.S. industrial base


DENVER & WINCHESTER, VA – OmniTRAX, one of the fastest growing railroads in North America and an affiliate of The Broe Group, is bringing its Rail-Ready Sites program to the Winchester & Western Railroad (WW) in Virginia. The Rail-Ready Sites program connects rail-served properties with customers looking to maximize supply chain efficiencies.

OmniTRAX is partnering with Frederick County Economic Development Authority to identify and market the best rail served sites along the Winchester and Western railroad. The initial three sites, which total 182 acres, are ideal locations for advanced manufacturing, food processing and agribusiness facilities.

“The Northern Shenandoah Valley is one of the most dynamic areas for industrial development on the east coast and the Rail-Ready sites we’re promoting with Frederick County Economic Development Authority have everything a company could want. Located along the rapidly growing Interstate 81 corridor, the location is within hours of more than 100 million people, it has a great workforce to draw from and has very business-friendly state and local governments,” said Ean Johnson, CEcD, Vice President of Industrial Development at OmniTRAX.

“Frederick County’s transportation infrastructure and proximity to major markets has proven to be advantageous for advanced manufacturers, allowing them to get products to market quickly and efficiently,” said Patrick Barker, Frederick County Economic Development Authority Executive Director. “The County has a strong manufacturing base, which includes employers like KraftHeinz, Trex and Rubbermaid. Partnership with OmniTRAX’s Rail-Ready Sites program is important as we recruit premier, and soon-to-be premier, companies to join them.”
