Hanley Energy to add 343 jobs in Ashburn
Irish energy management company launching $8M expansion
Irish energy management company Hanley Energy will invest $8 million to expand its Hanley Energy Electrical division in Loudoun County, a project expected to create 343 jobs, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Thursday.
Hanley Energy will open a facility at 44381 Russell Branch Parkway to serve the data center market in Ashburn with equipment installation and service. Electricians and apprentice electricians will be among the new positions.
“Virginia has emerged as one of North America’s premier locations for technology, and Loudoun County is the epicenter of the data center industry. This contribution is a perfect fit for Hanley Energy and its vital services that keep this sector growing,” Youngkin said in a statement.
Hanley Energy provides critical power and energy management solutions. It specializes in designing and building turnkey solutions to deliver power from the grid to data center IT racks.
The company has operated in Ireland for 13 years, and it established its U.S. headquarters in Loudoun County in 2016.
Hanley Energy CEO Clive Gilmore said, “We are greatly looking forward to moving into our new facility next month. This impressive facility will increase our output, range of products and services to our ever-growing U.S. market.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Loudoun County to secure the project for Virginia. VEDP will support Hanley Energy through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to support employee recruitment and training to companies creating jobs.
