On behalf of the Board and Members of the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce, I want to welcome you to Maine’s Capital region.
Augusta, Maine’s Capital City, and its neighboring cities and towns are rich in history, culture, industry and commerce.
Dozens of lakes and streams, the mighty Kennebec River and beautiful rolling, forested hills of the Capital area offer residents and visitors a unique natural environment and a high quality of life.
As the seat of State and County Government and a major hub of business and industry, the Capital area harbors a vibrant economy and offers opportunities for new business development.
Business trends are very positive in the Kennebec Valley, thanks in large part to two major construction projects: the new $312 million MaineGeneral Hospital and a large portion of the $1.4 billion Maine Power Reliability Project transmission line. In addition, two pipeline companies began delivering natural gas to industrial, commercial, and residential customers in 2013. This new energy source will reduce dependence on foreign oil and create competitive opportunities for current and new businesses.
The Kennebec Valley is a special place and we take great pride in it. Enjoy your stay here and call the Chamber if we can be of assistance.
