Come experience how welcoming Town of Amherst is. www.AmherstVABusiness.com
Amherst’s location in Central Virginia adjacent to Sweet Briar College provides an uncrowded yet cosmopolitan feeling. One of the main landmarks of the Town of Amherst is the roundabout located at the intersection of Main Street and U.S. Route 60. It is the oldest traffic circle in the VDOT system. The Town of Amherst sponsors the Amherst Industrial Development Authority which is able to provide a conduit for tax-exempt financing for qualified local manufacturing concerns. The L. Barnes Brockman, Sr. Business & Industrial Park is located in the Town of Amherst and is home to Fairmont Crossing and Mutual Telecom Services. This development has a series of “ready to go” building sites for industrial, commercial and institutional operations. Primary employers include: Glad Manufacturing, Buffalo Air Handling, Hermle, Sweet Briar College and Grief Brothers.
