Opportunities for International Businesses

Stafford County invites international business leaders to consider expanding their companies in the Stafford community.  Given its strategic location – midway between the nation’s capital of Washington, DC and Virginia’s capital of Richmond – Stafford County offers easy access to government agencies, international airports, and many cultural amenities.

Stafford is home to a number of notable businesses with an international presence or foreign affiliations, including BAE Systems (UK), American Rheinmetal Munitions (Germany) and QinetiQ (UK).  These companies have found Stafford to offer the amenities and customer base in which to maintain profitable operations, so we invite your company to do the same.

Through its relationship with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP), Stafford County Economic Development staff can facilitate valuable resources and detailed information on establishing a foreign-affiliated company in Virginia.  In addition, the VEDP’s Export Virginia program can assist Virginia-based companies in establishing international trade opportunities for local businesses offering goods and services.  The Export Virginia staff can identify potential new markets, develop market entry strategies, and help in locating distributors and international representatives for products and services.
