TOP EMPLOYERS


It’s good to BE WITH THE BEST.

In textiles, food production, defense manufacturing and more, our top employers are leading the way and changing the world. For decades, Rockingham County fiber and clothing manufacturers like Frontier Spinning, Unifi and Karastan proved that American operations could compete—and win—against the onslaught of outsourcing, and now newcomers like the giant SGRTEX are positioning Rockingham County at the forefront of the growing movement in reshoring.  In food processing, leaders like Keystone Foods and Ball Corporation are nurturing the world with quality products and fresh ideas, while firearms and defense manufacturers like Remington, Ruger and KDH Defense, makers of rugged and cutting edge body armor, are standing strong.  Henniges and Tiger Tek keep motors running, while Bridgestone’s Aircraft Tire retreading plant keeps the world flying high.

Rockingham County employers share leading qualities, yet their needs are diverse, and while many put down roots here decades ago—Karastan opened its operations here in 1928—newcomers like SGRTEX and Ruger have located here with ease and speed. The powerful blend of stability and innovation is one of the unique advantages that Rockingham County offers. We make it easy for your operation to be with the best.
