TemperPack Locates Manufacturing Plant in Henrico County, Virginia

05/21/2018
TemperPack, a Richmond-headquartered manufacturer of sustainable thermal insulation for the shipment of perishable goods, will invest $10.4 million to establish a manufacturing operation in Henrico County, Virginia. The facility, which is expected to create 141 jobs, will be the company’s second in The Old Dominion State.

“Virginia has been a great asset in TemperPack’s growth because of its diverse and talented workforce, its pro-business policies, and its geographic location, which allows us to easily service the entire East Coast and beyond,” said Brian Powers, TemperPack’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We couldn’t ask for a better partner in business as we continue to expand.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support TemperPack job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

“TemperPack is a wonderful Virginia success story, and I am thrilled to see this innovative company growing and expanding into Henrico County,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “With the rise in consumers ordering groceries, meals, and medication online, TemperPack tapped into a booming shipping market, and created an environmentally friendly product that comes with less waste than traditional packaging. TemperPack’s success demonstrates that the Richmond region and Virginia are ideal locations for entrepreneurs.”

“TemperPack’s rapid success is a great testament to the Richmond region’s competitive operating costs and robust workforce, and it is exciting to support this expansion in Henrico County,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “TemperPack was founded and is led by three visionary millennials, and we are honored to have this thriving company on the Commonwealth’s corporate roster.”

“Henrico County is delighted to partner with TemperPack in the next stage of their growth,” said Frank J. Thornton, Chairman, Henrico County Board of Supervisors. “TemperPack prioritizes innovation and sustainability, values which are at the core of the Henrico community. We are proud to celebrate TemperPack’s newest announcement, and we welcome their expanding team of 141 new employees here in Henrico County.”
