Carton manufacturer to expand Staunton operation, adding 34 new jobs
- September 12, 2012
Carded Graphics LLC plans to expand its manufacturing operation in Staunton, adding 34 new jobs.
Carded Graphics manufactures folding cartons and packaging for major food, pharmaceutical and beverage manufacturers. The company’s corporate offices and 120,000-square-foot plant are located in Staunton.
Virginia competed with North Carolina for the investment.
“Having made the decision in 2006 to move the total operation to Virginia, I am very pleased to be involved in such a community and state where a pro-business philosophy has been the key in supporting the environment and investments needed for continued growth,” Murry Pitts, president and CEO of Carded Graphics, said in a statement. “My decision to continue to invest in this area of Virginia was based on the positive responsiveness of our state and local partners, my commitment to this community and the people here that we serve.”
Gov. Bob McDonnell approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to help Staunton with the project.
