A group of economic developers from around the New River Valley visited Virginia Tech May 24 to learn about the types of research that might appeal to companies considering moving to the region. The group visited the Kroehling Advanced Materials Foundry, a metal casting facility just off campus on Plantation Road in Blacksburg, and also heard from researchers at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute.
