Botetourt Center at Greenfield
The Botetourt Center at Greenfield is the County’s signature economic development investment. Developed in the early 1990s, Greenfield is today the location of the Botetourt County Administration Center, at 57 S. Center Dr., in Daleville, VA.
Botetourt County offices were relocated to Greenfield in 2020 which allowed for most county administrative offices to be housed under one roof. The South Center Dr. location had previously been known as the Greenfield Education and Training Center. Today the center houses the Office of the County Administrator and other county departments as well as two constitutional offices: Commissioner of the Revenue and Treasurer.
The Botetourt County Board of Supervisors and various boards and commissions also utilize meeting space at the center. The location boasts parking for the community as well as handicap accessibility.
In partnership with Virginia Western Community College, the Botetourt County Economic Development Authority, which owns the property, is currently constructing an 8,900 square feet expansion adjacent to the County Administration building. Botetourt has taken the lead to design and construct the facility to support our partnership with Virginia Western in meeting the needs of existing and future workforce in Greenfield and the greater Botetourt community.

In March 2023, New Belgium Brewing announced an agreement to acquire Constellation Brands’ 259,000-square-foot production brewery in Daleville, Va. This agreement pertains to the facility itself and will include offers for continued employment by New Belgium for all current employees, but the acquisition does not include any brands. The deal is expected to close in early May of 2023. The acquisition will expand New Belgium’s existing production capacity to help meet the growing demand for its industry-leading craft beer portfolio – including Voodoo Ranger, America’s #1 IPA brand family. Upon completion of the deal, New Belgium – the largest and fastest-growing U.S. craft brewery – will immediately commence brewing at Daleville, focusing on Voodoo Ranger Juice Force IPA (the top U.S. craft beer launch of all time in 2022) and its high-velocity 2023 sequel Fruit Force IPA.
Australian-based Pratt Industries located to Greenfield in 2019 to establish a converting facility, which is part of its Sheet Plant Division.

Eldor manufactures ignition coils for the automotive industry, including Ford, Nissan, Volkswagen, and other manufacturers. Eldor conducted a multi-state site selection search, with Kentucky and South Carolina as the two other finalists for the project that Virginia won. Proximity to Virginia Tech, the University of Virginia, and regional STEM training programs with Virginia Western Community College contributed to Eldor choosing Botetourt County for its first US production facility.

Sweden-based Munters Corporation announced its decision to locate its newest state-of-the-art US facility at Greenfield in March 2021, involving a $36 million capital investment and 200 jobs.

Available labor resources, costs, logistical advantages, and proximity to key customer and industry hubs utilizing the Interstate 81 corridor solidified Munters’ decision. The company is represented in over 30 countries, with 17 plants and distribution centers and over 3,300 employees globally.
The Munters Botetourt plant concentrates on one primary business segment, data centers, and one smaller segment, high-temperature industrial air treatment. The new facility became operational in 2022 and Munters considers it will become its “Global Center of Excellence for Data Center cooling solutions.”
