Smyth County has gained a reputation through the decades for supporting industry and business, both existing and new. From the early days of the extract plant at Teas, the brick plant at Chilhowie, the Look & Lincoln wagon making company in Marion and the salt works and Mathieson Alkali (Olin Corp.) in Saltville, the County has been a home to many growing and successful manufacturing operations. Today, we have a strong employment base including such well-known companies as General Dynamics, Utility Trailer, Royal Mouldings, TRW, Scholle, Kennametal and United Salt; and many home-grown successful businesses including Smyth County Machine and Welding, Marion Mold and Tool, and C & A Fabricating to name only a few.
