BREAKING NEWS: 155 jobs coming to Henry County

Friday, January 31, 2014

Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced today that Kilgour Industries Ltd, a United Kingdom-based supplier of aircraft airframe and engine machined products, will invest $27.3 million in its first U.S. operation in Henry County and create 155 new jobs.

Kilgour specializes in computerized numerical control (CNC) machining, wet chemical surface treatments and sub-assemblies of aerospace components, according to a news release. Virginia competed against Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and South Carolina for the project, the release said.

“On my initial visit to Martinsville-Henry County, I was pleasantly surprised by the manner in which business was conducted,” Chief Executive Officer Ray Kilgour said in the release. “From the existing industry we met, the educational and training programs in the area, and the responsiveness of the economic development officials, we knew Martinsville-Henry County was a community that supports advanced manufacturing and a community in which we would be welcomed.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corp. and the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing to secure the project for Virginia, the release said. McAuliffe approved a $250,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Henry County with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved $1.15 million in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds.
