Largest Virginia Companies Outside the Area

Monday, May 14, 2007

Virginia's biggest companies represent a diversified lot. Smithfield Foods, already the world's largest pork producer, gobbled up three new meat businesses. A price war over flat-screen, high-definition televisions left Circuit City in a bind last year, forcing the Richmond electronics retailer to close stores and cut thousands of jobs. Dominion Resources of Richmond asked the legislature to re-regulate its electric utility in hopes of producing more predictable returns. Norfolk Southern teamed with Union Pacific to bolster freight service between Los Angeles and the Southeast. And Genworth Financial, the big financial services holding company in Richmond, spent a busy year tinkering with its portfolio, buying a life insurance company and selling off an employee benefits business.
