Expansion to create 55 jobs in Greensville County
Oran Safety Glass will expand its manufacturing business in Greensville County, creating 55 jobs and retaining 75 existing positions.
OSG makes specialty glass for buses, military vehicles and trains. The company will spend $4.45 million to expand its Greensville operation. Virginia competed against Wisconsin for the project.
OSG, an Israeli-headquartered manufacturer, develops a wide range of glass products, including armored safety glass, such as bullet-resistant windows.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $150,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission also approved $235,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds. The company is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program. The company also will receive funding from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
“OSG Inc. has had a very successful growth curve since launching our US operations in 2006,” Louis Mitchener, senior vice president, North America Division, Oran Safety Glass, said in a statement. “Greensville County, Virginia has been a vital part of that growth so expanding here made good business sense.”
