Get Connected with Washington County DBD

The Right Location for The Right Industries

Washington County's government, business, and community organizations partner to help diversify the local economy by providing specialized support to industries that have been identified to benefit from the area's assets. As a result, advanced manufacturing, aviation/aerodefense, and biotechnology/life science sectors are becoming a larger part of our industrial mix.

Advanced Manufacturing

The area's location at a major transportation crossroads has attracted a variety of manufacturing industries who value the region's outstanding access to markets throughout the Eastern U.S.

Aero Defense

Hagerstown has a long history in the aerospace industry dating back to WW2 and Fairchild Aircraft. Today, our regional airport is home to a thriving—and growing—core of companies in the aerospace and defense industries.


As property costs soar in the Baltimore/Washington region—one of the nation's leading biotechnology areas—more biotech companies are relocating to the Hagerstown area, which is more affordable yet still convenient to Baltimore and Washington.
