Nationwide Custom Homes, Martinsville, VA is beating the bad economy, in Virginia's highest unemployment rate area.   

The company finished building its 35,000th house Wednesday. 

Nationwide Homes was part of Palm Harbor Homes and was sold to Cavco's Fleetwood Homes after Palm Harbor filed bankruptcy.  CLICK HERE to read about the sale.
"We're really excited.  It's a big milestone for our company,” said Nationwide’s’ Vice President Robert McHugh.  "It's exciting, it's exciting.  Especially in the housing business, because it's taken a little bit of down turn, and actually our business is up.” 
At the plant, 140 workers crank out about one and a half modular homes per day.

The company shows no signs of slowing down.  Nationwide Custom Homes has orders in to keep these workers busy through the end of November.
