|“It is testimony, all across the board, to the fact that we’re really on the move in West Virginia and moving up the ranks in how people look at us being so business friendly and absolutely having the greatest resources we could ever have by far; and that is our people – their work ethic, they’re faith-based, they’re low-crime, they’re really craftsmen in their trades,” Gov. Justice continued. “The world is looking at us right now, as businesses leave other states right and left, many of them are looking at West Virginia.”
Speedway Motors plans to begin hiring for the new distribution facility in January and February. Positions will include human resources, warehouse, and maintenance positions.
“I personally want to thank all of our new friends in West Virginia,” said Clay Smith, President/Owner of Speedway Motors. “You’re absolutely right, Governor. West Virginia is very business-friendly and I’d like to thank you for your kind words, and also to the entire West Virginia Legislature for creating such a business-friendly environment. West Virginia, to us, already feels like home, where – together – we can just get this done. We love your attitude and we’re glad to be in the Mountain State.”
