Thomas Automation Management, an automation firm that solves industrial IT problems for companies around the world, will invest $1 million to expand its operation, creating 15 new jobs in Carroll County, Virginia.
“We are excited to expand our operations in Carroll County,” said Ricky Thomas, Owner/President of TAM. “We appreciate the assistance from the Commonwealth, Carroll County and the Carroll County IDA, and Virginia’s aCorridor in making this expansion a reality.”
As an incentive, Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Carroll County, the Carroll County Industrial Development Authority, and Virginia’s aCorridor to help secure the project for Virginia. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved $60,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds for the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
Governor Terry McAuliffe said, “As we work to build a new Virginia economy, we need more innovative companies like Thomas Automation Management in the Commonwealth. What started as a local business has evolved into an operation serving companies in at least six countries, further solidifying Virginia’s position in the global marketplace.”
