Joint IDA Recognizes Industries at Annual Luncheon

WYTHEVILLE — The Joint Industrial Development Authority held its annual Tenure Awards luncheon to celebrate Wythe County industries on April 18, 2024, at the Wytheville Meeting Center. An important part of the Joint IDA’s annual industry appreciation activities is our recognition of companies that have had a presence in Wythe County for a multiple of five years.
