Patrick County flooring company announces $9.3M expansion
Ten Oaks LLC to create 11 jobs
Ten Oaks LLC, a manufacturer of residential hardwood floors, will invest $9.3 million in a sorting and stacking facility in Patrick County, creating 11 jobs, Gov. Ralph Northam announced Wednesday.
The company was established in 2004 in the town of Stuart and was acquired in 2019 by Canadian company Boa-Franc. The new facility is located fewer than five miles from the company’s manufacturing center and headquarters.
The new facility will create 11 jobs and lead to the purchase of more than $18 million of Virginia-grown forest products over the next three years, according to a news release.
“We are really happy with this announcement, and we are convinced that this project will have a positive impact for Patrick County’s community,” said Ten Oaks President Pierre Thabet in a statement. “This will help to accelerate the growth by developing new innovations and secure the well-being of the region. We are confident that it will be a success over time.”
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Patrick County and the Patrick County Economic Development Authority to secure the project. Northam approved a $40,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund. Patrick County will match the funding. Funding and services to support job creation will be provided through VEDP’s Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
