Electronics wholesaler expected to add 66 jobs
A consumer electronics wholesaler, 2nd Life Inc., plans to expand its operations in Richmond’s Manchester district south of the James River.
The $975,000 project is expected to create 66 jobs during the next two years.
Founded last year, 2nd Life currently occupies a 27,000-square-foot warehouse in the Manchester district.
The company repairs more than 15 categories of pre-owned electronics. By repairing the devices, the company extends their usable life and creates additional value for its client’s assets.
The electronic devices handled by the company include digital cameras, computers, tablets, phones and gaming systems.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support the project 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.
