Target Industries

TVA Economic Development focuses its efforts on attracting industries that can bring maximum prosperity to our region, while gaining all its unique qualities and advantages in return. Mutually beneficial relationships have proven time and again to be the most prosperous and lasting ones. 

Four industries in particular are well suited to prosper in the Valley—because of our central location, our technology infrastructure and because of a ready market all around them. They are advanced manufacturing, transportation-related manufacturing, data centers, and food processing. Each will find a warm welcome in the Valley.

  • Transportation Manufacturing: The Valley is home to four major automotive manufacturers in the Southeastern U.S.—Volkswagen, General Motors, Nissan North America and Toyota—and 3,000 other automotive-related OEMs.
  • Data CentersThe Valley is uniquely suited for businesses in the technology and data businesses, thanks to its robust telecommunications connectivity, electrical power reliability, educated workforce and enterprise data centers.
