Dominion Packaging to invest $25.1 million in Virginia

Staff Writer |
Dominion Packaging will invest $25.1 million to expand its operation in Henrico County, Va, to support a new contract with Anheuser-Busch.




Virginia successfully competed against Pennsylvania for the project, which will create 60 new jobs.

Dominion Packaging specializes in high-quality packaging solutions for a variety of consumer industries, offering press, finishing and slitting equipment to meet customers’ needs.

The company has made substantial investments in industry-standard equipment to check many indicators of quality, such as copy, color, die lines, folds and adhesive integrity.

Major clients include Altria, Philip Morris, McDonald’s, Hardee’s and Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits.

“Dominion’s business strategy was best supported by Henrico County, offering the best geographic location, positive impact to financials and overall community environment that we believe supports a growing company,” said Brett Hawkins, President and CEO of Dominion Packaging.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Henrico County Economic Development Authority to secure this project for Virginia.

Governor Terry McAuliffe approved a $150,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Henrico County with the project.

The governor also approved a $200,000 performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment Partnership program, an incentive available to existing Virginia companies.

The company is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development.

Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
