- July 29, 2008
A portable water pump manufacturer will move its headquarters and manufacturing facility to Hillsville in Carroll County.
AmeriPumps LLC produces portable water pumps used in construction and mining industries, aboard ships and in hurricane recovery. The move will create 125 new jobs.
AmeriPumps’ headquarters is currently located in Chattanooga, Tenn.
“The decision to relocate our operations to Virginia was based on the strong work ethic and available work force in this geographic region, along with the quality of life only found in this part of Virginia,” AmeriPumps President Doug Zukowski said in a statement.
