JTI Leaf Services plans to invest $7.5 million in new tobacco processing technology at its Danville facility.
“We have made substantial investments to date, and we now have plans for further expansion of our Danville facility,” Steve Daniels, director of JTI Leaf Services, said in a statement. “With this investment we intend to further enhance our capacity, our efficiency and our quality.’
The Danville plant, which opened in 2009, employs more than 270 full-time and seasonal workers.
