Mid-Atlantic Advanced Manufacturing Center
The Mid-Atlantic Advanced Manufacturing Center (MAMaC), located in Greensville County, is a 1,600 acre mega site located on Interstate 95 and the mainline CSX railway, with direct access to Virginia ports. It is targeted at large scale industry, such as automobile manufacturing. The site is being funded by local and regional efforts, including Mecklenburg County. The City of Emporia and Mecklenburg County were co-applicants of Greensville County’s application in January 2012 to the Virginia Tobacco Commission which resulted in an award of $5.7 million to purchase and develop the site. The site is the only McCallum Sweeney Certified Mega site in Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland.
