“The High Technology Foundation has recruited some of the highest priority federal operations in the United States to Fairmont, West Virginia. In just the last few years alone, these operations have brought hundreds of millions of dollars in investment and business opportunity. We have had great success in this endeavor because we are located in a community that provides the fundamental components necessary for strong business growth. You would be hard pressed to find another municipal government that compares to the pro-business support environment offered by the City of Fairmont. Coupled with other local resources such as Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community and Technical College, the City of Fairmont community dramatically improves any business’ probability of success.” - James Estep
