Intertape Polymer Group (IPG), a packaging products and systems company that supplies to retailers and manufacturers, will invest $7 million to add significant manufacturing and distribution capacity at its facility in Pittsylvania County.
The Pittsylvania County facility occupies over 45 acres and employs nearly 300 workers. This announcement brings IPG’s recent investment in upgrades and expansions in this facility to $25 million. Virginia successfully competed against Illinois and South Carolina for the project, which will create 15 new jobs at the Pittsylvania County facility.
“Intertape Polymer Group has been a strong corporate steward in Pittsylvania County for nearly 30 years, and we are honored the company continues to reinvest and grow in Virginia,” said Governor McAuliffe, speaking at the event. “Boasting a skilled manufacturing workforce, extensive transportation network, and competitive operating costs, the Commonwealth provides an ideal environment for companies like IPG to thrive. The company’s competitiveness and operational excellence have been nationally recognized, and we thank this industry leader for contributing to our efforts to diversify and build the new Virginia economy.”
