The announcement that Poland-based Press Glass would invest $43.55 million to establish a 280,000-square-foot factory in Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre marked a milestone for Martinsville and Henry County. The flat-glass processing company will be the park’s first business.
“All the work that went into Commonwealth Crossing set the stage. In our part of the world, having a fully developed site and buildings is job one,” says Mark Heath, president and CEO of the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corp. “Without Commonwealth Crossing, we would never have talked to them. It was a value proposition for them because it saved them site development and cost.”
