Delta Pure Filtration, a manufacturer of cartridge filters and systems for water and various process fluids, will invest $2 million to expand its manufacturing operation in Hanover County, Virginia.
The company will expand their existing building to make room for more production equipment. They will also construct an additional facility on their current site for research and development, administrative services and warehouse space.
“Delta Pure Filtration chose to expand in Hanover County due to the convenient location and friendly business environment,” said Todd Furbee, President, Delta Pure Filtration. “About a third of our business is export, so being close to The Port of Virginia is a plus. Taxes are lower, and there are many potential employees within a few miles of our plant. Hanover County Economic Development and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership have been very supportive of Delta Pure and our continued growth.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) will support Delta Pure Filtration’s job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
“Delta Pure Filtration has been a valuable corporate steward in Hanover County for 35 years, and I congratulate this homegrown company on increasing their workforce with this expansion,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “Small businesses are the backbone of many Virginia communities and it has always been our priority to support them in every way we can. We thank Delta Pure for reinvesting in the Commonwealth, choosing to expand their operation in Hanover County and creating new jobs in the region.”
“Delta Pure Filtration’s decision to remain and grow in Virginia is a strong testament to Hanover County and the Commonwealth’s quality workforce and competitive business climate,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “In addition, Delta Pure’s strategic location off Interstate 95 and just minutes from Interstate 64 has provided the company easy accessibility to markets, another reason Virginia continues to attract and retain manufacturers of all sizes.”
“One major indicator of the economic success of any locality is the strength of their existing industries,” said E. Linwood Thomas IV, Director, Economic Development, Hanover County. “Many times we get credit for the large announcement, or relocation projects from another state or community, but the majority of growth comes from our current businesses like Delta Pure which have been here for years. The Hanover County Department of Economic Development was happy to play a small role in supporting Todd Furbee and his team on their expansion project, and we are excited to see their continued success here in Hanover.”
