Critical power equipment firm to create second plant in Henrico
- January 17, 2019
Anord Mardix (USA) Inc., a producer of power distribution and protection equipment, will spend $907,500 in establishing its second manufacturing facility in Henrico County.
The company’s move is expected to create 51 additional jobs in Henrico.
Anord Mardix makes electrical switchgear for data centers and cloud-computing companies.
Based in Co Louth, Ireland, Anord Mardix operates facilities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
The company, then known as Anord Critical Power, set up its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Henrico in 2014.
Anord Mardix is the result of the 2018 merger of Anord with Mardix Group, which was based in the United Kingdom.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Henrico Economic Development Authority to secure the project for Virginia and will support Anord Mardix’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).
VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change in order 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 citizens.
Anord Mardix also is eligible to receive Sales and Use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment.
