Woodgrain Inc will soon be expanding in two different locations in Right to Work Virginia. The first will be in Smyth County and will be covered by a $9 million investment. The other will be in Grayson County and will be covered by an $8 million investment. Altogether, these two new expansions will create 100 new jobs for the state. So this is another great example of how Right to Work states support business and economic growth!
From Area Development Magazine:
“We are excited about expanding our operations and furthering our commitment to Southwest Virginia. […] We believe this will have a significant, positive impact on the local economy and allow us to further leverage our vertical integration by supplying lumber to our millwork location in Smyth County and throughout the Southwest. It’s a win-win situation that will allow us to continue to provide best-in-class service and product.” […]
“New and expanding markets for Virginia forest products are vital to the sustainable management of the Commonwealth’s 16 million acres of forestland. […] These major expansions by Woodgrain will not only retain and create new high-paying jobs in Southwest Virginia, but also expand important market opportunities for our landowners, leading to a healthier forest resource.” […]
“Virginia’s Industrial Advancement Alliance is extremely excited to help finalize both expansions of Woodgrain Millwork in Grayson and Smyth Counties. […] These expansions will strengthen the supply chain in the region. Congratulations to Grayson County, Smyth County, VIAA Business Retention and Expansion staff, Virginia Economic Development Partnership project managers, Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the Tobacco Commission for helping deliver another big win for the region.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
