BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - It took eight years, but it now looks like the first tenant in the 55-acre Morgan County Industrial Park South will soon be moving in.
Officials working on the the deal to bring the Japanese "high-tech" firm to Morgan County said Tuesday they won't name the firm until negotiations are complete. They also said they hope selling the first tract will create a domino effect that will bring other companies in.
The park has been vacant since it opened in 1989.
Phillip Maggio, president of the Morgan County Commissioners, said Tuesday this will be the first investment by a Japanese firm in the Eastern Panhandle and the first U.S. investment for the company.
