Jobs created by Belvac due to can making equipment demand
Belvac is set to invest more than $3 million and create around 50 new jobs in Bedford County, Virginia, US, over the next five years.
Demand for beverage can making equipment has resulted in the need for this expansion. Belvac will lease the newly built shell building located at 1450 Meade Road, in Forest, which is on a nine-acre lot owned by the EDA in the New London Business and Technology Center.
“We are very pleased with the efforts, cooperation, and the speed of the Bedford County EDA to help push this project forward in a timely manner,” said Belvac’s Executive Vice President, David Mammolenti. “The New London Business and Technology Center’s location and convenience will help attract a highly skilled workforce which will help us expand our capacity to meet the growing demand from our customers.”
“We are delighted to welcome Belvac as they grow and expand the region’s robust automated machinery manufacturing industry,” said EDA Chairman, Jim Messier. “This corporate decision demonstrates that our long-term goals in support of an advanced manufacturing labor force is paying off.”
The side should be operational by Q3 2021.
