Lutron Electronics Creating 200 Jobs In Hanover County
Pennsylvania-based Lutron Electronics will invest $28.3 million to build a manufacturing facility in Hanover County. The 145,000-square-foot facility in Ashland will increase the lighting control, automated shading solutions, and intelligent fixtures company’s manufacturing capacity and create approximately 200 new jobs.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Hanover County community and further supporting our global customers with increased manufacturing capacity,” said Lutron President Ed Blair.
“Lutron Electronics is pioneering lighting technology in the 21st century, developing innovative products that save energy and set the company apart from its competitors,” said Gov. Youngkin. “We are proud that Lutron is growing its presence in Hanover County with a new manufacturing operation and creating 200 high-quality jobs that will boost Virginia’s economy and our robust manufacturing sector.”
VEDP worked with Hanover County to secure the project for Virginia. Gov. Youngkin approved a $250,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Hanover County with the project. Funding and services to support Lutron Electronics’ employee training activities will be provided through the VJIP.
“As Lutron Electronics expands its domestic and global reach, a Hanover County manufacturing location offers the strategic location, infrastructure, and workforce needed to accommodate continued growth,” said Merrick. “The Commonwealth of Virginia is proud to support the company’s expansion and strengthen our long-term corporate partnership.”
