Alchemco, a Brazilian-based firm specializing in the moisture and surface protection market, will locate its global headquarters in Henrico County, Virginia.
The company leased 2,800 square feet at 3532 Mayland Court for its headquarters with plans to hire 15-20 new employees within the next three years for its $5 million expansion.
“Our company has been in the Richmond area since 2016. With the growth of our business, we decided to stay in the Greater Richmond area, that is very business friendly and a great place to live and to raise a family,” said Mario Baggio, CEO of Alchemco.
“The region’s economic development partners had a crucial role since day one,” said Baggio. “They helped us in networking and connected us with important entities in Greater Richmond, helping our business to expedite the process.”
“Our ideal East Coast location and access to the Richmond International Airport make Henrico the perfect place for international companies to thrive,” said Thomas Branin, Vice Chairman, Henrico County Board of Supervisors. “We thank Alchemco for choosing Henrico as its home and look forward to the company adding new jobs to our community.”
“Alchemco helps further strengthen the international business community, which represents more than 220 firms throughout the region,” said Lara Fritts, President & CEO of the Greater Richmond Partnership. “Alchemco is yet another international firm that we have assisted that started small but expanded aggressively.”
