Former Governor Northam Announces New Jobs, Investment in Floyd County


RICHMOND — Former Governor Ralph Northam today announced that Phoenix Hardwoods, Inc., an artisan manufacturer of high-quality furniture and home goods made exclusively from Virginia-grown hardwoods, will expand its production facility in the county and open a new retail storefront in the historic Farmer Supply store in the heart of downtown Floyd. The new retail and manufacturing space will enable the company to grow its product line, improve production efficiencies and better serve its customers.

“Phoenix Hardwoods makes such beautiful furniture,” said Former Governor Ralph S. Northam. “Each piece displays the essence of the tree, sourced near Floyd, celebrating the Blue Ridge, and made right here at home in Virginia. Our team has worked hard over four years to bring business opportunities across Virginia, and we are working hard until the very end. We’ve pushed to recruit large, global companies to Virginia--attracting more than $80 billion in new investment and 100,000 new jobs--but we get really excited about the small, family-run Virginia companies, like Phoenix Hardwoods.”

As a lifelong conservationist, I'm overwhelmed and elated to receive this AFID grant. This will allow Phoenix Hardwoods to expand and continue our work with Virginia's sustainable natural and human resources, trees, and jobs.
