Green Applications LLC set to create more than 300 jobs in Orange County
New Jersey-based Green Applications LLC will invest $9.75 million to establish its first Virginia operation in Orange County, creating 323 jobs.
“Virginia is great state with a strong workforce to lead our East Coast expansion,” Robert Butters, Green Applications owner and CEO said in a statement. “As the textile print and embellishment industry moves back to domestic production, being located in the center of the East Coast allows us to deliver quick-turn and strategic solutions to our customers …”
The company will design, print, produce and distribute graphic art on heat transfers and apparel. Green Applications is a division of Green Distribution, one of the largest printers and distributors of textile merchandise and heat applied graphics on the East Coast.
Virginia competed against Florida and New Jersey for the project.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $540,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund for the project.
