Handshake 2.0 asked companies about the business benefits of locating at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center–known locally as "the CRC."

Henry Bass, President of Automation Creations, Inc., answered.

Top Three Ways the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center has Fostered Our Business

  • Since originally locating here in 1996, the CRC remains the best Internet infrastructure location in the New River Valley. ACI hosts over 200 websites, from simple business overview web pages, to entire line-of-business applications over the web.  Having the sites on our servers allows us greater control over the software development process and gives our customers a single point of contact for any web-related issues.
  • The business network of 130 enterprises located in one park has provided countless opportunities for us to work with neighboring high-tech firms in all manner of roles: supplier, customer, and partner, as well as opportunities for employees to move from one firm to another and keep smart, talented people in this region.
  • The CRC offers an extremely flexible lease that allows us to grow or shrink as the need arises.
