AF&F has benefited from the City of Albemarle’s plentiful water and sewer treatment capacity, and from a rate structure that provides beneficial rates for manufacturing. Albemarle has been a good location for our corporate headquarters and has provided a welcoming and productive environment for our company, its associates and their families.
