Hutchins & Hutchins Expands Augusta County, Virginia, Operations

Hutchins & Hutchins, a company that assembles and distributes cleanroom supplies and equipment, will invest $224,000 to expand its production complex in Augusta County, Virginia.

“Home grown, home based. Virginia exemplifies both,” said Rebecca Wiseman, President of Hutchins & Hutchins, Inc. “From the beginnings in the basement of the family home in 1984 to the current day location in hometown Waynesboro, Virginia, Hutchins & Hutchins, Inc. has experienced tremendous growth.”

“With continued growth in the government, pharmaceutical fields, and the recent opening of HutchMed Medical Supply, a division of Hutchins & Hutchins, expansion is a must. With the experience and capabilities of our current staff, and with our anticipated new hires, our employee base will serve as a strong support for our continued growth. Working with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and Augusta County on the growth and opportunity incentives they were able to offer was the icing on the cake to staying in Virginia,” she added.

According to state officials, the company is adding government and industrial contracts and will expand its warehouse to accommodate the growth. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Hutchins & Hutchins’ new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program. Augusta County will match the VJIP funding awarded to the company to support the expansion project.

“Located in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley at the intersection of I-64 and I-81, Augusta County offers strategic access to transportation networks and national and global markets, providing an ideal location for distribution companies like Hutchins & Hutchins,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe.

“Ensuring that small businesses have the opportunity for growth and success in the Commonwealth is an important component in our efforts to diversify and build the new Virginia economy. We thank Hutchins & Hutchins for its commitment to the Commonwealth, and look forward to a continued partnership,” he added.

“Hutchins & Hutchins has been a valuable corporate steward in the Shenandoah Valley region and will undoubtedly continue to benefit from the Commonwealth’s strategic location, competitive business climate, and strong labor pool,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore. “Virginia’s distribution industry employs nearly 80,000 and is growing, and close proximity to East Coast and Midwest markets makes Augusta County a prime location for this important sector. Supporting businesses of all sizes is vital to a healthy economy, and we’re proud Hutchins & Hutchins will benefit from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.”
