The project will create 12 new jobs and position the company to handle future potential contracts in automotive, construction materials, industrial mixing, and other industries.

The company was founded in 1964 in Wytheville, Virginia as Williams Manufacturing.

Clarke Precision Machine acquired the company in 2015 and continued to operate as an engineered solution provider to consumers requiring custom machined products.

Clarke Precision Machine is a build-to-order welding, machining, and fabrication shop supporting companies throughout Southwest Virginia and the surrounding regions.

With more than 50 years of experience and expertise, Clarke Precision Machine is the preferred supplier of tooling to many of the industry’s largest Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the Joint Industrial Development Authority of Wythe County on this project, and VEDP will support Clarke Precision Machine’s expansion through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).

VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.

As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies.

VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for its citizens.
